Grandma's Stuffed Cabbage (Gluten-Free)

Grandma always said her cabbage was great for a hot meal on cool Fall or cold Winter days. It cooks all in one pot and takes about three hours on a medium heat.

Ingredients:
2  Heads Savoy Cabbage--less likely to cause stomach issues
2  Cans Muir Glen Diced Tomatoes--No Salt Added, Gluten Free
2  Pounds Chopped Sirloin
2  Large Sweet Vidalia Onions Diced into really small pieces
2  Anne Chun's Rice Express Sticky White Rice
1  Anne Chun's Rice Express Brown Rice

Directions
In a large pot, boil both heads of cabbage for about 6 minutes, then remove from pot, and pour cold water over them and let them cool in the sink. While waiting for them to cool sufficiently so you can handle the leaves without burning your fingers you can mix-up the remaining ingredients.

In a large bowl, put the chopped sirloin, next all the onion you've diced and then all the rice, with your fingers thoroughly mix all the ingredients together. Pour off all the water from the large pot you cooked the cabbage in and put on side.  Take four leaves of the cabbage and spread them out on the bottom of the pot, then take about 1/4 cup of the juice from the diced tomatoes and pour over the leaves on the bottom of the pot.

Next take one of the cabbage leaves and take two heaping tablespoons of the sirloin, onion and rice mixture into the middle of opened cabbage leaf and then carefully roll it up when all rolled up put on the leaves in the bottom of the pot and repeat until you've used all the leaves--if you have any mixture left just roll into small meatball and put in the pot, then pour both cans of the diced tomatoes over all the cabbages. 

Put the pot on the stove put the lid on not completely cover-the pot and cook on a medium flame for about 3 hours. When finished serve with hot gluten-free rolls and Enjoy!!!!

I'm sorry, but this is a poor excuse for stuffed cabbage and the problem has nothing to do with gluten -which is not in the basic recipe in any event. There is no seasoning in the sauce! In all my many experiences with varieties of stuffed cabbage, which I love, there was always a sweet-sour flavor in the tomato sauce -usually from some combination of vinegar, lemon juice and brown sugar. In addition various versions included some other seasonings - perhaps a small amount of cinnamon or cloves, for example.

I still prefer steaming, but I wash my white rice throughly. I purchase California rice which has a lower level of arsenic. Moderation is key to most everything! ?

I eat pretty much grain free just fine, I eat fats instead. But on a side note I posted some specialty and grain free options as of late in the food alternative page where I list companies and food product alternatives. I honestly just welcomed bread back into my life, I found a company that makes grain free bread out of nut flours. Given you have to toast the dang bread to use it well but seems to work decently. Pasta there are carb free versions out there, and there are ones made with quinoa, buckwheat, or other grains, I even know one company that makes nut flour based ones. You can get these gluten-free options and avoid the rice. As to levels of arsenic they do test foods for these, and all should be safe, the trace amounts and the sheer amount you would have to eat to get effected is staggering, a bit of rice will not hurt you regardless if your concerned I know gluten-free watchdog does arsenic testing on products you could check and find the "safest ones" for your concerns.

I've forgotten them, just remember the good stuff. Weekends in Baja or Vegas or up Pacific highway to see the Redwoods and Frisco. Watching the sunrise at Mount Soledad and watching it drop into the Pacific in the evening. Carne Asada Burritos on Garnet* Solana beach ale* Gorgeous women entranced by my exotic accent, humboldt county weed, raves at the romper room, *1.99 are you out of your mind Denny Breakfasts, Christmas on the beach, *Beers in the gaslamp quarter. I need one of these * which by the power of my imagination have magically become gluten free AANNNYWAAY... Arsenic in rice. Yeah.

Oh, it definitely struck me as very odd! It also says "no significant increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes". That's their favorite word I guess! My blood work pre-biopsy also showed increase lymphocytes and my primary doctor said it usually means increased inflammation. Doing all the things I can now---filing a complaint, I've emailed my doctors to tell them I'm upset and don't think I received proper care, I'm in the process of trying to see a naturopath that diagnosed a friend of a friend w celiac. I'm going to see if i can get the other blood work done with them---and I've been gluten free for a week and a half!

There are plenty of negatives......?
