Place the cabbage on a chopping board, one at a time, and remove the lower part of the leaf, where the stem is very thick.
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
To make the rolls place one cabbage leaf on the working surface, place a little filling more or less in the middle of the leaf. Fold the lower part of the leaf over, then one side of the leaf over the filling, then the other side of the leaf over.
Roll the leaf to form the cabbage roll and tuck in the open end of the leaf.
Arrange the cabbage rolls in the dish, in a tight, single layer.
Pour stock over the rolls, just as much as to barely cover the rolls, they should not swim in the water.
Bake for about 35 minutes or until the rolls are nicely coloured and the cabbage is cooked through.
