2. To make the sauce: Sautee onion and garlic in butter and cook until onions are translucent and tender. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook for around 20 minutes.

3. To make filling: Add all the ingredients into a bowl and mix together until well combined.

4. To assemble: Take a blanched cabbage leaf and remove the thick part of the stem by cutting which leaves a V shape. Take about 1/4 cup of the filling and place in the center of the leaf, fold and roll the leaf around the filling. Place cabbage roll in a 9 x 13 baking dish with 1 to 2 cups of sauce in the bottom. Once the baking dish is full, pour remaining sauce over the top. Cover and bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours.
