Step 1 - The Filling

  • Begin by combining all of your filling ingredients into a large bowl. Mix with chopsticks until well combined. If you'd like to check for seasonings, simply fry a small piece of the filling until cooked and taste it. If you think it needs additional seasonings for your liking, then go for it and add in more herbs, fish sauce, sugar, or rice wine vinegar!
  • Set the filling aside while you blanch your cabbage.

Step 2 - Blanch your cabbage

Step 3 - Assembling you Vietnamese-Inspired Cabbage Rolls

Cuisine Vietnamese

Servings 12 Cabbage Rolls

Ingredients

For The Filling

  • 500g pork mince
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 birdseye green chilli, finely sliced
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • bunch coriander, sliced
  • bunch mint leaves, sliced
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 100g vermicelli noodles, cooked to packet instructions and then chopped with scissors

Cabbbage

  • 12 cabbage leaves (I used chinese cabbage)

The Dipping Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 birdseye chilli, finely chopped
  • ½ lime juiced
  • 5 tablespoon boiling water

Instructions

  • Combine all of your filling ingredients in a large bowl. Mix with chopsticks until it's well combined. Feel free to fry a small spoonful of the filling to try it. Add more seasonings (herbs, fish sauce, rice wine vinegar, or sugar) based on your taste! Set your filling aside while you blanch your cabbage.

  • Place a pan of boiling water on high heat. Add in your 12 cabbage leaves (depending on how big your pan is, you might want to do 6 at a time). Blanch for a few minutes or until the white parts of the cabbage are soft. Remove from the pan and gently set aside to cool.

  • Once your cabbage is cool, place one leaf on a clean surface. Add a spoonful of the filling mixture at the bottom of your cabbage leaf (on the white stem area). Roll up your cabbage leaf into a cabbage roll. Don't worry about tucking in the sides, once you pan-fry the rolls, the filling will solidify into a log and won't fall out either side. Set the cabbage roll aside, and repeat this step. If you have any filling leftover, simply fry it up and eat it alongside your cabbage rolls.

  • Place a non-stick frying pan on medium heat and drizzle with a bit of oil. Add in your cabbage rolls (once again you might want to fry 6 at a time). Fry for 4 minutes with the lid on. Then, flip the cabbage rolls and add in around 50-100ml of water and place the lid back on. Cook for a further 10 minutes or until the water has evaporated.

  • Meanwhile, combine all of your dipping sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Season to taste and set it aside!

  • Once your cabbage rolls are cooked, remove them from the pan and serve up with your dipping sauce...enjoy!

    A suggestion for other than coriander/cilantro? 🤮🤢 just make it without an herb?

      You could also use Thai basil if you like! Otherwise, just leave it out! 🙂

    Turned out great, so many great flavors-very photogenic plating also. I halved the recipe and made 6 rolls and the sauce is amazing, I added a little more heat, but drizzled it on our side dish also. Plated the cabbage rolls, zucchini cooked in avocado oil then baked with seasoned and topped with Parmesan and lastly a serving of the pasta mixed with the remaining meat mixture I’d cooked up.
