Cabbage rolls with meat and vegetables

There are a lot of ways to prepare cabbage rolls. With our recipe, we added an Asian touch with soy sauce and ginger. Ginger is widely used in Asian cuisine both for its peculiar taste and for its healthy and medicinal qualities. Here is a way to start using ginger in our cooking.

Cabbage rolls with meat and vegetables recipe

Yields 16 rolls

Ingredients:

  • 1 small head of cabbage (16 leaves)
  • 7 ounces ground pork
  • 7 ounces ground beef
  • 1 carrot, minced
  • 1 zucchini, minced
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 16 long chives (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce, for serving

Directions:

  1. Blanch the cabbage leaves for about 4 minutes in boiling salted water. Drop them in a bowl of water with ice after straining them from the boiling water. Pat them dry with paper towels.
  2. In a bowl, mix the pork, beef, carrot, onion, zucchini, ginger, egg, salt, pepper, 1/8 cup soy sauce and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the remaining 1/8 cup soy sauce and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Sprinkle some pepper. Set aside.
  4. Get about 1-1/2 tablespoons of meat and put it on a cabbage leaf. Roll, then fold both sides inward and continue rolling until the end. Secure it by trying a chive or you can leave it as is if they don't open.
  5. Quickly oil a baking dish. Put the cabbage rolls in it. When the baking dish is filled up with the cabbage rolls, drizzle them with extra-virgin olive oil.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven of 395 degrees F for 30 minutes. Midway through cooking, take out the baking dish and quickly pour the mixture of soy sauce and lemon on top of the cabbage rolls.

I have eaten cabbage rolls ad infinitum since childhood [quite some time ago!], They have never been Asian flavoured [shall promptly try!] nor have they looked so pretty! This looks like party food :) !
