There was an in between step I was confused on. After you cut the core of each slice off in a triangle shape, did you cut it up and add it to the filling? It wasn’t really mentioned at all.

We love cabbage rolls in Poland, never knew Japan has them too. A must try!

Robert Johnson says:

I guess I just don’t know enough about the country, but I don’t see where the Japanese part comes in.

I Avendano says:

And do I have to add white wine, if so does it have alcohol?

Don B Whipkey says:

keenedge100 says:

Namiko Chen I’m curious why you dust the cabbage leaves with flour?

And I do wish people would stop going on and on with the It’s Armenian, no it’s Georgian, no it’s Hungarian, no it’s Polish. I mean really. If you collected all the cabbage rolls, regardless of the native title, for a taste test they’d all taste the same, even the Japanese version without rice.

マノバンラリサ says:

oh my,it looked so yummy and healthy but unfortunately some of the ingredients cant be found at my country 🙁 i really want to try this recipe , this channel never dissapoint me.. always make me drooling 😉

KayH says:

My mother use to make stuffed cabbage but with a sweetened soy sauce broth instead of the traditional tomato base then serve with rice. I’ve never tried the regular version. Thank you for this recipe.
