in the bag that you brought your savoy cabbage home… . Place the cabbage in the freezer and leave for 12 hours or overnight…. . Remove and leave to thaw at room temperature. . This will take a while. . So i often take it the night before the day i want to make the cabbage rolls. The leaves will be soft and easy to use without having to boil them.
in a small saucepan or a microwave safe covered dish… . Cook the rice… set aside to cool. The rice can be made the day ahead and kept chilled in the refrigerator overnight.
chop the onions fine and saute them slowly until they are golden brown. . Set aside to cool.
in a large bowl, break apart the ground beef, add the salt, pepper, eggs, sauteed onions, and the rice… mix together until combined… use your hands
