Even though I occasionally like sauerkraut, and I use cabbage when I make my stir fry dishes, I am not a fan of cooked cabbage. They are a staple of Eastern European cooking and also appear in some Asian countries. Typically, the include a meat, spices, vegetables, and grains such as rice or barley. Depending on which country’s cuisine, there may be additional ingredients or fewer, and they may be steamed, baked, boiled, or otherwise prepared. They are not unlike dolmas or sarmas of Mediterranean and MidEast cuisine, although those use grape leaves rather than cabbage leaves.
