I was inspired to make these cabbage rolls after watching Kekkon Dekinai Otoko (“The Man Who Cannot Get Married”) for the umpteenth time. The dish appeared in a scene and it looked soooo delicious, I searched for a recipe online and found one on JustBento.
I made the cabbage rolls using ground pork marinated with minced onion, grated ginger and some soy sauce. These cabbage rolls were then simmered in bonito broth over low fire. The hardest bit for me was in wrapping the pork balls in steamed cabbage leaves. I just couldn’t get them into neat little packages. We ate these cabbage rolls with udon in bonito broth.
Kekkon Dekinai Otoko is one of my favorite Japanese dramas. It is a super fun drama! I have watched it countless times, and I never get tired of it. How can one get sick of Abe Hiroshi?
