I had a craving for cabbage rolls this week and cabbage was on sale at my favourite grocery store, T&T. Also, lean ground pork was on sale! Exciting times, let me tell you. So I spent Tuesday making a big pan of cabbage rolls, and they turned out fantastically! I didn't cook or par cook the rice first, I just put it into the filling mixture raw, and although it came out a bit mushy, it worked very well. I used the rice I had on hand, which was jasmine, but in the future I think I'll get a longer-cooking rice so I don't get the mush problem.
Here are some photos I took of my day.
Yes, I put half a package of bacon over the top - and it was great! I was too lazy to fry it up and add it to the filling. This worked just as well.
