Sardinian Cabbage Rolls Recipe

(involtini sardi)

Preparation time : 20 minutes + 20 minutes cooking time

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • lean ground beef or pork 11/3 lb (600 g)
  • savoy cabbage with large leaves 1 head
  • extra-virgin olive oil 2 tbsp (30 ml)
  • white wine 1 cup (2 dl)
  • garlic 1 clove chopped
  • fresh sage 5 leaves chopped
  • parsley, chopped 3 tbsp
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method :

  1. Mix together the ground meat with the garlic, sage, and parsley. Shape the mixture into small balls or cylinders about 11/4 inches (3 cm) long and 3/4 inch (2 cm) wide. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Break off the cabbage leaves and wash. Blanch the savoy cabbage leaves in boiling salted water until tender. Drain the leaves, immerse in ice water, then drain again. Wrap the leaves around the prepared meat.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté the cabbage rolls until lightly browned, then add the white wine. Simmer until the wine evaporates. Cover the pan and cook, adding water if necessary, until the leaves are very tender.
