Steps

  1. Mix all sauce ingredients in a freezer bag or container. Add meat, cabbage, apples and cranberries. Add salt and pepper and mix well. Place mixture in the freezer.

    *Mixture can be frozen for up to 3 months. Feel free to double or triple the recipe, but keep the same proportions.

  3. Serve with sliced green onions.

Recommendations

It’s better to add ingredients like onions and garlic the same day, as the taste changes when frozen.
