My version of this recipe is really very easy to make. I bought bunches of turnips from the market the other day, and I have few pieces left. Yes you guessed right! I am mixing turnips for the filling in my cabbage rolls.
|Easy Cabbage Rolls|
6 large cabbage leaves
250g lean ground beef
1/2 cup white onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup carrots, grated
1/2 cup jicama or turnips (singkamas), grated
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp catsup
1 tbsp olive oil
1 egg, beaten
a dash of paprika
ground pepper, to taste
salt, to taste
How to prepare:
> Blanch the cabbage leaves to soften it so they wont tear and break apart when you roll them with the filling later. In a pot of boiling water, drop the cabbage and cook for about 2 minutes. Drain. Then put the leaves in a bowl of cold water. Drain. Set aside.
> In a pan, saute the onion in olive oil. Add the ground beef, when its cooked or almost brown, add in the turnips , carrots and the seasonings. When cooked, turn off the heat.Then add in the egg. Mix. Remove excess juice from the mixture.
> Place a spoonful or two of thefilling in the center of the cabbage leaf, then roll. You may fold the ends if you wish, like when you're doing the lumpia rolls.
> Makes 6 servings. Serve it with your favorite dipping sauce or hot sauce. Enjoy!
