1/2 head cabbage, shredded

4 slices bacon, chopped

1 pound ground beef

1 onion, diced

1 teaspoon dried mint

1 teaspoon dried parsley

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

4 tablespoons tomato paste

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, and butter a 9×13 (or equivalent) baking dish. Toss the cabbage with a teaspoon of salt, and let it sit while you prepare the filling.

Sauté bacon until crispy. Pour off excess fat, leaving about a tablespoon in the pan. Add the beef to the pan and brown it, breaking it up as you go. Add onion, garlic, and seasonings and cook 3-5 more minutes, until onions are beginning to soften. Stir in tomato paste and wine. Remove pan from heat, and stir in the yogurt.

Spread half the cabbage in the buttered dish, and top with beef. Repeat with remaining cabbage and beef. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and continue baking for another 15 minutes. Enjoy!
