Ingredients

  • 1 large white onion, halved crosswise, ends discarded, plus 1/2 onion coarsely chopped
  • 5 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 4 baby carrots
  • 1 stalk celery, coarsely chopped
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 cup rolled oats or breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 cup tomato sauce with garlic
  • 1 cup cold water

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Serving suggestions: Cold sour cream, cucumber salad

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. 

Boil the halved onions in water with 3 tablespoons of the vinegar until soft but not falling apart, about 15 minutes. 

Put the chopped onions, carrots and celery in a food processor and blend until finely chopped. Combine the vegetable mixture, ground beef, oats, rice, tomato sauce, cold water, paprika, vegetable herb seasoning, chicken base, garlic and pepper in a bowl and mix well with your hands. 

Remove the halved onions from the water and separate into cups. Fill each cup with meat mixture and place meat-side up in a single layer in a 12- by 15-inch baking pan. Mix the remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar with enough hot water to pour into the pan to cover halfway up the sides. Cover and bake for 2 hours. 

To serve, transfer the stuffed onions to plates and cover with sauce. Serve with a cold sour cream and cucumber salad.
