Golubtsy is a popular dish among Eastern Europeans, particularly in Russian and Ukraine. Traditional filling includes ground meat – usually beef, lamb, or pork – mixed with fresh garlic, onions and spices. Grains like rice or barley usually accompany the meat stuffing for fuller flavor. Some recipes call for mushrooms or other vegetables, but authentic recipes usually contain just meat and grains.
Fresh or pickled cabbage leaves are used for wrapping the ingredients before baking, boiling, or steaming them in a covered pot. Sauces accompanying golubtsy vary by cuisine and by region, but generally have either a savory or sweet-and-sour flavors. In Russia and Ukraine, the most common sauces were tomato based – particularly in the late autumn when tomatoes were in season. Golubtsy are traditionally served warm with a dollop of fresh sour cream.
