How to Cook Crispy Cabbage Rolls
Our first step would be pouring 4 cups of water into a cooking pot. Apply some heat, and just let this boil. Then you must sprinkle in 1 teaspoon of salt. Place your 12 Napa cabbage leaves inside, and then boil this for 1 minute. Afterward, you need to put some cold water inside a large bowl. Transfer your cabbage from the pot, and submerge it in the cold water till it cools. Once it does, take it out of the bowl, and let it dry.
Put 3 tablespoons of cooking oil in a pan, and heat it. It is now time to add 5 cloves of garlic you’ve chopped and sauté this. When it begins to brown, you can add 1 onion you’ve chopped. Continue cooking until the onion gets soft, and then you can integrate 1 lb. of ground pork. Keep stirring as you are cooking this until the pork becomes light brown. Then add 1 Knorr Pork Cube. We will cook the mixture for 2 minutes, and then sprinkle in as much salt and ground black pepper as we would prefer for the flavor of the dish. Then just transfer everything to a large bowl, and proceed to let it cool.
Mixing in a few final ingredients
We now just need to integrate ½ cup of minced carrots, ½ cup of minced green onion, 1 egg, 5 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, and 2 teaspoons of sesame oil. Mix these components thoroughly into our large bowl with the rest of the filling ingredients.
Putting the filling in the cabbage
Your next step would be to scoop 3 tablespoons of your meat mixture. Then put this over a piece of Napa cabbage. Fold both sides of the cabbage inwards, and just roll this till the filling is covered entirely. And to make sure it doesn’t fall out, we must insert a toothpick into the cabbage roll.
Coating then frying the cabbage rolls
Go ahead, and heat 1 cup of cooking oil in a pan. As we’re waiting, we can just prepare our cabbage rolls by putting ½ cup of all-purpose flour, 2 beaten eggs, and 1 ½ cups of panko breadcrumbs in separate bowls. Dredge the cabbage rolls in the all-purpose flour. Afterward, dip this into your beaten egg, and then lastly, dredge it in panko breadcrumbs until it is coated completely.
Then once the oil is hot, you can toss the cabbage roll into the pan, and fry one side until it turns golden brown. Then just flip it over, and repeat that step for the other side.
Arranging and serving the Crispy Cabbage Rolls
Now that your cabbage rolls are cooked, you can transfer them to a plate lined with some paper towels. You could also use a wire rack to get rid of the excess oil. Just let everything cool.
Now you can slice up the cabbage rolls into bite-sized pieces, and serve them alongside any dipping sauce you’d like!
