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.
