1)In big bowl mix both mince together and smoked pork.

2)In pan heat half of the oil add onions and fry until lightly gold.Add paprika and quickly stir.Take off from the stove and transfer this to mince.Mix well and add the rest of oil.

3)In deeper saucepan boil rice ,but only half time cooking time.(see direction on packet) then strain with strainer and quickly rinse under cold water.Put the rice to mince.Season with salt and pepper.If you can taste and see,if anything need to be added.Mix all well together.

4)Put hand full of the mixture to each leaves (don’t put to much,because the rice will be double when is cooked.Roll and tuck in both end to form roll.

5)In deep saucepan put on bottom aluminium steamer and neatly put one by one in.Don’t leave to much space between them.Pour water over the rolls,but make sure the are all under water,when cooking.The best is when you put on top of that plate and on a plate you put little saucepan with water.( keep them down )Cook about 2 – 2 1/2 hour.

6)Serve just as that,because meat is already in.

    • HI Vesna.Of course I don’t mind you add your recipe.Every recipe taste different.Only what I can say I did not found the leaves here in the shops,so I have to used whole fresh cabbage and this take me more time.
