I added a clove of garlic and an inch or more of ginger, added that to the minced veggies and sautéed until soft, then added that to the pork to create the mix. Added lots of flavor without having to add more salt or soy!
Loved this! Yes...agreed - it was a bit bland at first so we used a little soy sauce over them. Luckily we only ate half of it, because when I had the rest later on - it was amazing! So basically just let it sit...or have it simmer for longer on a lower heat. The perfect dish to cook earlier on in the day to get it out of the way. That way it can sit, and you can reheat it when you are ready to eat :)
My daughter found this recipe today for us to try. It was so good! I was afraid it would be bland like other reviewers said. I thought so my first bite but not any after. I think I was trying to compare it to the German cabbage rolls I grew up with. I did have to use baby bellas because I couldn't find the other mushrooms. I also couldn't find ground pork at two stores. I ended up using boneless center cut pork chops that I ran through the food processor. I think ground chicken would be an acceptable substitution as well. I will be be doubling the recipe next time because there were no leftovers after the three us were done.
I tried these and they were a little bland at the beginning. I used ground beef instead of pork because we aren't fond of ground pork. I also added a sauce made from tomato soup undiluted mixed with some brown sugar and ginger and soy sauce. I added a tiny bit of red pepper flakes for a "kick" and they were very good. Thank you for sharing this simple way to make something we all love. At least our family does!
I thought the cabbage rolls turned out too bland, however, it still went over well.
I made it for my family and all of us thought it was really bland and needed some sort of kick or bite to it. If I ever make them again I will deffinitly add some sort of spice maybe chili flakes or something a little spicy. we did eat them all though served them on top of rice and steamed veggies!!!
Very good! My kids even loved them. Great with garlic mashed potatoes.
I love it!!!
There were very good. It was so nice to find a stuffed cabbage recipe that didn't call for tomatoes. I will definitely make again.
