Good because there were none. Who knows why they stayed together? Some of them didn't as the first picture shows.

well, no wonder they weren't as tight as you wish they were. :)

OK, picture of the most recent attempt at gołąbki. :) Mushroom sauce this time and boiled potatoes. :)

Try to soak the gołąbki in mushroom or tomatoes sauce (which one you prefer) for a bit. It's more tasty that way.

Thanks for the tip. I much prefer mushroom sauce. So far I can only make a sauce which is enough to cover the gołąbki but I have seen pictures of them soaking in sauces. I will try in future. :)

Here's a pic of some of the delicious Polish food I had bought at a recent Polish Bazaar. It was held over the past weekend, at Our Lady of The Bright Mount Polish church. It's located in Los Angeles, CA.

I think you should use a covered pan (one of those oval deep ones for your golumki. Just sitting on a cookie sheet will dry them out and burn the leaves (I can see by the photos) Add some water to the pan just enough to coover the bottom and allow them to steam, you will need to check and add periodically) We also stack them on top of each other in the pan. Towards the end of the baking time then try adding you sauce. I don't like mushy ones ( cabbage must be moist yet insides on dry side...meaning the rice and meat does not look clumped and like paste)

A typical Polish Plate served at festivals.

Believe it or not I do use a deep dish and I pour water into the bottom before covering with foil. When I made those ones in my second lot of pictures I didn't add any further water.

I made them again today and added more water at the beginning so when I checked them 1/2 way and then 3/4 way through they didn't require any addtional water as there was still adequate left in the bottom of the dish and they weren't burnt at all. (Now I wish I had taken a picture of these ones. ;)

I read your tip about the sauce and decided against it, most of the people who are eating them here prefer them only with ketchup. I prefer them with mushroom sauce so I just add that when serving. Perhaps in the future I'll try your way. I'll be giving the gołąbki a rest for a while though as I have a new dish to try! ;)

Thanks for the tips ;)

(Currently I am making cabbage soup ;)

To keep you golumki together when rolling them make sure the seam side is set down (not up) Then when you place one next to the other and on top of each other if making many they will hold themselves from coming apart. To fill you use the pocket (stem side) to place filling, fold over one edge then the other edge and roll down till the end placing the end facing down in the pan.

PolskaDoll,

What is your recipe for the mushroom sauce? It looks delicious! Here in the Detroit (US) area, we always bake our stuffed cabbages in lots of sauce. I use a tomato sauce and they are great, but would like to try the mushroom sauce.

Also, I'd like a recipe for the cucumbers in sauce. Thanks a lot.

Are those potato pancakes? What is your recipe? I make a zucchini pancake that looks identical. Thanks.

I didn't make the mushroom sauce in the those pictures but when I do make it I use a recipe similar to this one here but with my own secret ingredient. ;)

I don't bake the gołąbki in the sauce though because I like them with only a little sauce on them. :)

I do too...now. I didn't before but then about a year or more ago I realised I was eating a load of crap so I started to teach myself a few things. Now it's a favourite past-time...only wish I had more time to do it. ;)

most of the people who are eating them here prefer them only with ketchup

My mom uses ketsup in the last stage of adding water just before they are done. Shw will take equal part water to ketsup and mix so that it will have the consistancy of a sauce and pour over the golumbki. I do not add ketsup when I am eating them although some members of the family will put ketsup on them when eating them. This gives just enough hint of a taste and is not as over powering as ketsup dumped directly on them.
