Directions See How It's Made
- Saute green onions, red pepper, ginger, garlic and chilis in oil on medium heat until onions are soft.
- Let cool and mix into large bowl with meat, sauces, seasonings, brown sugar, ketchup, mustard, and egg.
- Cover and place in refrigerator.
- Pre-heat oven to 350.
- Remove core from cabbages.
- Steam cabbage on high with core side facing water for 10 minutes or until soft.
- Remove from heat and let cool.
- Boil potatoes until soft enough for mashing.
- While potatoes are boiling, saute onions in butter until translucent.
- Add onions to potatoes when ready and mash with seasoning and milk.
- Once cabbage has cooled, carefully peel each leaf off and stuff with spoonful of meat followed by a large spoonful of mashed potatoes.
- Wrap the cabbage up and place into 2 qt baking dish with the seam facing downward. I prefer to use the outer leaves of the cabbage as they are easier to fold --
- Cover with chicken stock.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
- Let cool for a few minutes and serve.
