Cabbage rolls are pretty popular in East Europe, but I would say it’s also pretty common home cooking food in Japan as well. I remember that my mother often cooked cabbage rolls when I was small.

  • Mince half the onion and slice the other half into thick slices.

I tried combining cabbage rolls with pot-au-feu. I made the meat filling easy and light by using ground chicken. The only flavouring is consomme, salt, and pepper, so it is simple and easy. The wieners add the perfect amount of saltiness as well. In the case that the cabbage rolls do not stay rolled, hold them in place using toothpicks. Just be sure to remove them when eating.
