Precautions to Take When Freezing Stuffed Cabbage
When freezing stuffed cabbage, there are a few key steps to take in order to ensure that your dish comes out tasting as good as when it was first made. Here is a list of the most important things to keep in mind:

2. Cook the stuffing until it is fully cooked, then let it cool completely before stuffing the cabbage leaves. Hot stuffing will cause the cabbage leaves to cook unevenly and could make them mushy when frozen.
