Instructions
  1. With the help of a kitchen knife or cabbage/cauliflower corer, carefully remove the core out of the cabbage by cutting a deep pyramid-shaped incision around the core.

  6. Blanch cabbage until the leaves are slightly softened (around 5 minutes). Select Cancel.
  7. Using two large spoons, carefully turn the cabbage bottom side up to soften the top. Avoid splashing the hot water. Let the top of the cabbage soften in the boiling water for around 2 Minutes.

Add 2-3 tbsp of the filling to the side close to you horizontally, leave a 2 inch gap from the left, right and the side close to you. Fold the sides of the leave onto the filling and roll. If the leave is too large, feel free to vertically cut into two pieces. Arrange the cabbage roll on the tray seam side down. Avoid using leaves with tears.
  11. Roll all the leaves to use up all the filling.
  12. Dump out the water in the cooking vessel. Dry the vessel with paper towel.

  19. Select Manual II. Set the temperature to 335°F and set the time to 1 Hour. Press Start.
  20. When the cooking time has ended, let the rolls rest for 10 Minutes in the Dutch Oven.
