[LOW] 30 min


8 large outer cabbage leaves

½ lb ground beef and ½ lb ground pork, refrigerated
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 large egg, beaten
1/5 cup (50 ml) milk, room temperature
1 cup (100 g) breadcrumbs, soaked in milk
½ medium onion, finely chopped
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

8 slices bacon
1 medium onion, sliced
1 cluster shimeji mushrooms, stemmed, separated
6 mushrooms, stemmed, halved
1 bay leaf
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground coarse black pepper

  1. Quickly boil cabbage leaves. Drain and slice off the center vein of each leaf. Set aside and cool.

  2. In a large bowl, combine ground beef and pork. Add salt and mix using your hands until the mixture becomes sticky. Add the remaining Filling ingredients and continue to knead until fully incorporated. Divide into 8 portions and shape each into an oval, patting to release air.

  3. Spread a cabbage leaf on a cutting board with the stem end closest to you. Place Filling near the stem end and roll up, folding both sides in as you roll. Position the stuffed cabbage seam-side down and wrap a slice of bacon around it. Repeat to make 8 rolls.

  4. Place sliced onions into the pot, then lay stuffed cabbage rolls on top, seam-side down. Top with shimeji, mushrooms and bay leaf. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, cover and simmer over [LOW] heat for 30 minutes.

  • Simmering in tomato sauce or with aromatic herbs such as rosemary is also recommended.
