Ground pork often gets overlooked in recipes – ground beef is much more popular – but the lighter flavor of ground pork can make some amazing recipes too! We enjoy the Japanese-inspired flavors of the pork, mushroom, and vegetable stuffing inside this cabbage roll. Serving with the chicken and soy sauce broth makes the dish complete. Feel free to make the stuffing to your particular tastes by adding or removing vegetables and seasonings.
