Pigs In A Blanket1 large head cabbage
3/4 lb. ground pork
3/4 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup finely chopped or ground onion
1 egg
2 tablespoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon paprika
1 cup rice, uncooked
1 can (2 1/2 cups) sauerkraut
1 can (2 1/2 cups) tomato juice
3 cups water
1 cup sour cream
Core the cabbage and place head-down in enough boiling water to cover. Turn off heat. When cabbage has softened, remove from water and separate leaves, leaving them whole.
Trim heavy vein down to make it look flat. Combine meat, onion, egg, seasonings, and rice. Mix well.
In the center of each cabbage leaf place 2 to 3 tablespoons of this filling mixture. Fold two sides down toward center and roll. Secure with toothpicks.

Place in large kettle or Crockpot; spread sauerkraut over the rolls. Add the tomato juice and water.
Bring to a boil on high heat; reduce heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
Please cabbage rolls on a serving dish. Mix a small amount of the liquid with the sour cream and pour over the cabbage rolls.
