Recipe by Secret Agent

This is an easy way to get your cabbage leaves ready to stuff. You probably need more than two gallons of water, I sure do in my giant pot. I also do this outside to keep the house from smelling like cabbage for days.

Tried this method of preparing cabbage leaves and I am going to use it from now on for making cabbage rolls. Your method is so much easier.


  1. Get your big fork and hammer it into the cabbage core.
  2. Boil a lot of water in your biggest pot.
  3. Dunk the entire cabbage into the pot for about 30 seconds and remove the outermost leaf. Continue until the entire cabbage is peeled and finish your recipe.
