I first start out with a head of cabbage of medium size, place in pan of water to boil. Once you have it boiling, let it boil about 15-20 mins this should get all the way thru to the heart of the cabbage. Once done set aside in a strainer/colander to drain excess water off. Better to drain heart side down!
Cook until done thoroughly. ***Reality is you will probably have cabbage done before the meat is finished.
While all your meat and cabbage are cooking put on some rice (1 c white rice to 2 c water) bring to boil then turn down to simmer until water is gone about 20 mins.
|then cut out the heart or the ribbing (like you see in the picture)|
|add one big spoonful(ladle) of cooked mix to the leaf|
|fold the bottom sides in first then roll to the big(leafy) end|
|Repeat until you have a full pan|
|Bake in 350* oven for about 25 mins|
