Grounded Pork Stuffed Cabbage Soup

Grounded Pork Stuffed Cabbage Soup, a delectable dish in Khmer country cuisine, is often reserved for special occasions, showcasing the villagers’ culinary traditions and celebrating flavorful gatherings.

The recipe begins with the preparation of cabbage and green onion leaves. These are simmered in water until tender, creating a soft and pliable base for the stuffed cabbage rolls. Meanwhile, a flavorful mixture of grounded pork, fish sauce, sugar, black pepper, bean thread noodles, and chopped green onions is crafted, forming a robust stuffing for the cabbage rolls.

Each cabbage leaf serves as a canvas for the pork stuffing, with a portion carefully placed and rolled like an eggroll. Green onion leaves are utilized to tie and secure the rolls, ensuring a neat and compact presentation. This meticulous process results in 14 cabbage rolls, each a testament to the care and attention given to this traditional recipe.

The cabbage rolls are then placed in a soup pot along with chicken broth and water. Covered and simmered for 40 minutes, the rolls absorb the rich flavors of the broth, creating a harmonious blend. The soup is further seasoned with fish sauce, sugar, and salt, enhancing the overall taste profile.

Before serving, the soup is garnished with chopped green onions, providing a burst of freshness and color. It’s important to note that any toothpicks used during preparation should be removed before serving. Best enjoyed hot with rice, Grounded Pork Stuffed Cabbage Soup offers a delicious and heartwarming experience, perfect for festive occasions.
