Those Who Have Died
by Suicide





1 egg...whisk it really well
1/4 c. lemon juice (can substitute vinegar for this)
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 can tomato juice ( 46 ounce size) or 1 can tomato sauce plus water)

1 lb. extra lean ground beef
1 onion...grated
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. uncooked rice
10-12 cabbage leaves
Boiling water
1 carrot...grated

Combine ground beef, rice, egg, onion, carrot, and salt; mix. Blanch cabbage leaves by covering with boiling water, letting stand 2-3 minutes. Drain. Put ball of meat mix on cabbage leaf, roll up, tuck ends, stick tooth pick in to hold together. Place rolls close together in heavy, ovenproof skillet. Add remaining ingredients, using enough water to cover rolls. Cover pan and cook over moderate heat 30 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes longer. Uncover pan and bake in 350 degree oven 20 minutes, turning once to brown bottom sides. Add hot water or tomato sauce or juice during
baking if sauce cooks down too much. Makes 5-6 servings.
Note: Kevin loved this recipe as a child, especially with lots of brown sugar and very heavy on the tomato sauce. After he moved away, this was what he requested when he came home to visit.
