  • 200 g coarsely ground meat
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 slice sandwich bread (6-slice loaf)

Servings
4 portions
Method
  1. Boil cabbage until soft in lightly salted water, drain in a sieve, and lightly salt and pepper. Cut off the stems, mince, and squeeze out excess water.
  2. Put the ground meat, minced onion, beaten egg, finely crumbled bread, and the cabbage stems from 1 in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Spread out the cabbage leaves, put in 1/4 of the mixture from 2 on the leaf and wrap. Secure the end with a toothpick.
  4. Melt 3 teaspoons butter in a frying pan, place 3 in the pan with the wrapped end down, and cook over medium heat until lightly browned.
  5. Put 600 ml water and the bouillon cubes in a pan, heat, add salt and pepper to taste, add 4 and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes. When softened, add tomato puree and maple syrup and simmer for a while, until the flavors meld. Remove cabbage rolls and place on a plate.
  6. Put the remaining butter in the frying pan from 5, and slowly whisk in flour to thicken, taking care not to form lumps.
  7. Pour the sauce from 6 over the plated cabbage rolls.
