    Main ingredients:
    Ground Pork
    Cabbage leaves

    Chopped Ginger
    Chopped Onions
    Chopped Garlic
    Chopped Chili Pepper

    Season Pork with:
    Chili Flakes

    Add to cooked pork:
    Brown Miso Paste
    Fish sauce
    Soy sauce

    Top with:


Feel free to reduce the amount of soy sauce and salt for lower sodium version. I'm using a soy made without wheat. You can also adjust the chill mixture, although mine wasn't very spicy. You can use smaller leaves of cabbage if a large one is unmanageable.


In a pan saute ginger, onions, garlic, and chili pepper until soft. Meanwhile, season the ground pork with salt, pepper, cumin and chill flakes. Brown the pork in same pan as onions/garlic/pepper/ginger, stirring together. Add 2 chopped cabbage leaves to mixture and cook until soft.

Add to cooked pork the soy sauce, mirin, fish sauce, and miso paste. Add a splash of water and cook until simmering.

Take pan off heat and add chopped cilantro and a handful of chopped cashews. Place ground pork mixture into cooked cabbage leaves and roll or eat as is.


Steam large cabbage leaves in a steamer. Carefully remove soft leaves and place on paper towel to absorb water.

To cooked pork mixture add soy sauce, fish sauce, miso paste, a little hot water and miren.

Serving Size: Makes 4 servings - one large leaf for each person
