Boiled Corned Beef & Veggies
easy • international • main course • soup
Not that I have Irish ancestors to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day , but I really like this corned beef & veggies soup. It is simple and rustic, but very aromatic and filling. It does take a lot of time to boil meat, but if you cook in two stages, it's really not that bad.

Czech Meat and Cabbage Loaf
international • main course • meat
To a Russian speaker, translating the ingredients from Czech is rather trivial, and the combination of cabbage, bread and milk in a meatloaf immediately struck me as original and interesting. The union of cabbage and meat reminds me of mom's Golubtsy , traditional Russian cabbage rolls, but by contrast the taste of cabbage in this meatloaf recipe is much less pronounced. Cabbage mostly makes the texture of the meat tender, but does not assert itself.

Golubtsy - Cabbage Rolls with Meat
main course • meat • Russian traditional
Russian golubtsy that are known in America mostly as Polish golabki , are simply cabbage rolls with meat and are popular in many European countries. I consider golubtsy one of Russian traditional and loved dishes. It takes some effort and patience, but the payoff is just great: steaming hot rolls with most delightful meat filling accompanied with a dollop of cold sour cream.
