Cabbage Rolls

The cabbage keeps so well in the fridge that it will always be cooked only when all other greens are consumed. When a cabbage dish is served, my daughter would comment - 'so, we need to buy greens tomorrow?' This is one way to cook the cabbage.

Isn't it amzing how universal the stuffed cabbage is? I grew up eating the sweet-and-sour Eastern European version. I'm going to try this one this weekend.

i was wondering if this works on other type of cabbages? like napa cabbage or the taiwanese one too. =)

the napa tastes delicious too but the taiwanese napa cabbage is so slim that i think you would have to line a few then roll them. these taiwanese ones are very sweet.

Hi, I happen to pop by your blog, is a nice blog. The cabbage rolls look good and would like to try it out myself. May I ask, what kind of cabbage is it? Is it the round and light green type?

I just happen to pop by your blog and it is a nice and neat one. The cabbage rolls look yummy and would like to try it myself. May I know what kind of cabbage did u use? Is it the small round one that's light green in colour? Or is it Wong Pak?

i hope you are the same person asking which type of cabbage did i use.

i used the ordinary round cabbage but it will be just as delicious if you use wong nga pak - nappa cabbage

dont understand the steaming step..

are the rolls steamed and then returned to the broth?

the cabbage rolls are arranged on a platter or deep dish, then just pour in the stock and put the platter on a steamer. steam until the filling in the rolls is cooked
