Cooking casseroles with cabbage and minced meat:
Step 1: prepare the ingredients.
We take a small head of cabbage and remove the upper damaged leaves from it. We peel onions and carefully wash the vegetables under cold running water from any kind of pollution. Then we dry them with paper kitchen towels, put them on a cutting board one by one and cut: cabbage into strips up to 5 millimeters thick, onions into cubes up to 1 centimeter. We lay out the slices in separate bowls. Cut off the paraffin crust from the hard cheese and rub it on a fine or medium grater into a deep plate.
After we put on the kitchen table the rest of the products and spices that will be needed to prepare the casseroles with cabbage and minced meat. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Step 2: fry the minced meat with onions.
Now turn on the stove to a medium level and put on it a frying pan with 25 milliliters of vegetable oil. When it warms up, we put in the pan half of the total mass of onions. Fry it, stirring with a kitchen spatula, for 2 - 3 minutes to transparency. Then add 500 grams of minced meat to the onion, to taste salt, black ground pepper and break the minced meat with a kitchen spatula into smaller pieces. Fry onions and meat together yet 15 - 20 minutesstirring occasionally. Then we transfer the stewed meat into a clean bowl, and put the pan back on the stove and pour in another 25 milliliters of vegetable oil.
Step 3: stew cabbage with onions.
When the oil is heated, put the remaining onions in a pan and fry it too 2 - 3 minutes to transparency. After we add cabbage straws to it, salt to taste, pour 50 milliliters of pure water into the pan, cover it with a lid and simmer the vegetables 15 - 20 minutes. Then transfer the stewed cabbage into a clean bowl.
Step 4: form a casserole with cabbage and minced meat.
Now we take a heat-resistant baking dish and put half of the stewed cabbage in it with an even layer. Lubricate the cabbage layer with 150 milliliters of sour cream and spread the stewed minced meat on top of it.
We also level it around the entire perimeter of the form, grease it with 150 milliliters of sour cream and lay on top the remaining cabbage, which in turn is covered with a layer of sour cream. Sprinkle sour cream with chopped cheese and proceed to the final stage of preparation.
Step 5: bring the dish to full readiness.
We put in a preheated oven a form with still raw food. Bake a casserole with cabbage and minced meat for 25-30 minutes. During this time, all the components of the dish will reach full readiness, and the melted cheese will brown and give the casserole an incredibly appetizing look. In 25 - 30 minutes we put on kitchen gloves and take out the form from the oven.
We put it on a cutting board. We allow the dish to cool slightly. Then, using a kitchen spatula, divide the casserole into portions, arrange them on plates and serve.
Step 6: serve the casserole with cabbage and minced meat.
Casserole with cabbage and minced meat is served warm as a second hot dish. Before serving, each serving of this dish can be sprinkled with fresh chopped herbs or pour sour cream. It is unlikely that anyone will refuse such a tasty and nutritious dish. Enjoy it!
