Cabbage is rich in fiber.

This helps with our digestion.

How to make it:

Step 1: Wash cabbage and pat dry. Remove lower parts and the inside of the cabbage using a sharp knife. Set aside all the parts you won’t use.

Step 2: In a big bowl, mix meat, 2 eggs, salt, and pepper. Mix well together.

Step 3: Put meat in the cabbage. Make sure it’s compact, and every part of the cabbage has been filled with meat.

Step 4: Create space in the middle of the meat and insert cheese. By this time, some of the meat will overflow. Use this to cover the cheese, then lay it on a flat tray.

Step 5: Use remaining meat to cover the whole cabbage. Now you can see that it looks like an enormous ball of meat.
