Drop cabbage leaves into boiling water and cook 1-2 minutes or until pliable. Immediately plunge into cold water to stop cooking.

Use a trivet or crumble a large sheet of foil into bottom of cooker to keep rolls out of liquid. Cut a "V" from stem of cabbage leaf: remove tough portion.

In a medium bowl, combine pork, water chestnuts, garlic, onions, mint, ginger, lemon juice, chili oil, sugar, and salt. Place about 1 1/2 tablespoons pork mixture in center of each cabbage leaf. Roll to enclose mixture. Place on trivet or foil, seam side down, stacking if necessary. Cover and cook on low 5-6 hours.

Meanwhile, make sauce: Bring all sauce ingredients to a boil in a small sauce pan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer 2-3 minutes. Remove cabbage rolls to a serving dish. Pour sauce over rolls.
