Our Family's Cabbage Rolls

Our Family's Cabbage Rolls

This is our family's recipe for cabbage rolls. You only need to simmer it in a clear broth, but because the meat is flavored well, the taste of the soup and the rolls will improve as you simmer them for longer.

Ingredients: 4 servings

6 tablespoons
4 tablespoons
Ground pork and beef mixture
200 g
2 tablespoons
Salt and pepper
A dash
8 leaves
Plain flour
A pinch
2 slices
1 tablespoon
Soup stock cubes
Frozen green peas
1/4 cup


1. Soak the panko with milk. Mince the onion.
2. Combine the meat, egg, panko, onion and mix together. Season with ketchup, salt and pepper. Form 8 barrel-shaped patties.
3. For the cabbage, peel the leaves carefully from the outside. Boil 2 to 3 leaves each in boiling water until soft, then remove the hard stem.
4. Spread out the cooked cabbage leaf. Dust with flour using a tea strainer. Top with the fillings made in Step 2 and wrap.
5. Chop the bacon into 1cm pieces. Heat butter in a pot and fry the bacon.
6. In the same pot, align the cabbage rolls. Pour in 2-3 cups of water. When it comes to a boil, season with soup stock cubes and salt. Cover the pot and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.
7. Sprinkle on the green peas. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer to a serving dish.
