Instructions

To Soften the Cabbage Leaves:

  1. Cut the core out of a large head of cabbage.
  2. Remove any discolored or damaged leaves from the outside.
  3. Place in a large bowl, stem side down with 1 cup of water in the bottom.
  4. Microwave, covered, on high for 8 minutes, or until the outer leaves are softened and turning translucent.
  5. Remove and cool before carefully separating leaves for use.

Instant Pot Instructions:

  1. Place 1/2 cup of sauce on bottom of Instant Pot insert.
  2. Place a cabbage leaf on a clean flat surface and add 1/2 cup meat filling to the center.
  3. Fold the two sides over the meat mixture, then roll from the edge closest to you over the meat mixture until a small rolled bundle is formed.
  4. Place the roll in the Instant Pot, (make sure you’ve added some sauce per above first so they don’t stick)
  5. Repeat with three more rolls.
  6. Top the rolls with 1 cup of sauce.
