Recipe for Cabbage rolls
Though looking fancy and quite artistic, these cabbage rolls are quite easy to make. These can be served as an appetizer or as main over rice/noodles: Light, sweet-savory pork rolls wrapped inside green cabbage.
Servings 12 rolls
- 1 large cabbage
- ½ lb pork
- ⅔ cup mixed veggies (corn, carrot...)
- 12 leaves green onion
- a handful of black fungus or mushroom
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp seasoning powder of choice
- ¼ tsp ground pepper
Cut pork into 1 inch cubes.
Add pork cubes, mixed veggies, black fungus/mushroom, and all seasoning to the food processor and process for a couple of seconds. Do not grind too much, leave some to texture.
Wash and carefully separate cabbage leaves. Separate the green leaves from the white bulb of green onion/scallion. You can use these bulbs for other recipes or finely chopped and mix in with the ground pork mixture.
Bring a large pot of water to boil, then parboil cabbage leaves and green onion leaf to soften them up.
Carefully use soften cabbage leaves to wrap and roll minced pork, use green onion to tie them.
Steam cabbage roll for 10-15 minutes.
Serve hot with dipping soy sauce or as is.
