Hot Dish: TooJay’s Deli’s Sweet and Sour Stuffed Cabbage

This month's Hot Dish: Sweet and sour stuffed cabbage from TooJay's Deli in Sarasota.


TooJay's sweet and sour stuffed cabbage

I always thought my Nana had the market on sweet and sour stuffed cabbage. There was something so comforting about the tender rolls, filled with ground beef and swimming in a tomato sauce sweetened with brown sugar and studded with raisins and tangy with a dash of sour salt from the old New York markets. No one will replace Nana’s stuffed cabbage, but TooJay’s Deli’s monster-sized roll, a not-too-sweet riff on Hungarian tradition, comes darn close. Order a slice of rye to wipe up all that saucy goodness.
