Recipe submitted by maggie on January 14th, 2007

Cabbage and pork flavours compliment each other so perfectly in this dish. The Tangy Tomato Sauce adds not only a another dimension to the flavour but also adds a contrasting colour to enhance the presentation of the dish.

Stuffed Cabbage
1 medium cabbage
400g mince pork
1 clove Garlic, crushed

Add to pot of boilling salted water and cook for approximately 6 minutes (until the leaves are just soft and can be loosened). Remove cabbage and set aside to drain and cool.

Cook for 30 seconds then add the minced pork and carrot. Stir constantly until pork is cooked then add oyster sauce mix. Continue cooking until liquid is reduced to almost nothing. Remove from heat and stir in spring onion and cooked rice.

3. On the center of each cabbage leaf, place about 3 tablespoons of the pork mixture. Fold over both sides of the leaf in to the centre and roll from the bottom of the leaf. Roll tightly. Repeat until all mixture is used. Place completed rolls in to steamer seam-side down. Steam for 10 minutes.

4. While the cabbage rolls are steaming make the sauce. Add all sauce ingredients to a pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.

      Primo recipe and soo easy. My wife had to stop me from eating all the mince before stuffing the cabbage leaves!! Left out the 5 spice and spring onions - but added a regular diced onion with the garlic and ginger.. Didn't make the sauce but will do next time as I'll definitely be making this again.
