Long Shot: Patricia Unterman's Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

This was my favorite one and I've lost it. She published in the Examiner it after she was laid off/retired from the Chronicle. It is a sweet and sour one, and uses tomato sauce and brown sugar. It is possibly Marion Cunningham's now that I recall.

No gingersnaps. And I just found it. I actually asked on my food board years ago, so it seems I lose and find it often! The one I made from the newspaper used Turkey which gets tender with a long cooking, so that threw me off and it is Marion's from Lost Recipes:

Serves 4

1 large head Savoy cabbage, halved and cored
3 T butter
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 cups tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1 t ground allspice
Salt and black pepper to taste
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups cooked white rice
1 pound lean ground beef
Applesauce (recipe follows)
1 cup sour cream

Allspice in stuffed cabbage sounds great, I'll have to try it:)

nutcakes, I have a recipe that a friend gave me ages ago that sounds just like that. Does it have ginger snaps crumbled on top? If so, i'll look for it when I get home tonight and send it to you.
