Adding raw cereal

If you add raw cereal to stuffed cabbage rolls, it simply won't have time to cook. This is why the dish becomes dry. To prevent this from happening, boil the porridge a little and then add it to the minced meat.

Too much meat

If there's a lot of meat in the cabbage rolls, it doesn't mean they'll be very tasty. It is very important to mix the minced meat with vegetables and aromatic herbs. These ingredients will add juiciness.

Do not stuff stuffed cabbage rolls too tightly. The stuffing should absorb enough air. If it does not, the dish will turn out dry. Make sure there is some space inside the roll.
