Instant Pot Golubsti (Stuffed Cabbage)

 This is a meal that takes 10 minutes to do from start to finish! Saute the onions and meat for 5 minutes and pressure cook for another 1! It is filling and super healthy for you, unless you like it with sour cream like I do!

It is literally 6 in the morning on a Saturday right now and I am awake.

Why?

The Instant Pot, of course. (And I never sleep much)

I was making Icelandic Yogurt and had to check it at 5, so I am waiting for it to thicken to see if it is something that I can make again for the blog!

Friday on stream was Russian Day, so I decided to make Golubsti, or stuffed cabbage, for my lunch.  I wanted to do it in the Instant Pot because I knew it would be very quick.

Golubsti

Not only was it quick, but it was so much more flavorful than I thought that it would be!

This is something that needs to go in your weekday rotation!

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 lb ground turkey (or beef)
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup rice, cooked
  • 1 head cabbage, cored
  • 1 tbs Olive Oil
  • 2 tbs parsley chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 1 1/2 tbs white vinegar
  • 1 tbs sage
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • salt and pepper (½ tbs each in the filling, 1 tbs in sauce before pressure, taste and adjust after)

Instructions

  1. Put Instant Pot on Saute, add oil, onions, and ground turkey for 4 minutes or until brown and mostly cooked.
  2. Take off saute and deglaze with the chicken stock. Scrape all of the brown bits off of the bottom so you do not cause your IP to go to BURN mode. Take all of the ingredients and put into a bowl on the side. (You can either make the rice in the IP or have made it before. But for 1 cup of rice, add 1.25 cups of stock, high pressure for 10 minutes, controlled quick release and set aside)
  3. Roll everything you’ve made into the cabbage and secure with toothpicks.
  4. Drop in the crushed tomatoes, the stock, and seasoning. Put in a steam basket and add the cabbage rolls.
  5. High Pressure for 1 minute, Quick release, take out the rolls
  6. Put on saute, taste sauce, add vinegar and reduce for 5 minutes
  7. Serve rolls with the sauce
  8. EDIT: If you want more pliable cabbage, steam for just 1 minute in the IP
