Recipe Notes
Meal Prep and Storage
To Prep-Ahead: This is the perfect make-ahead dish, the flavor marries as it sits, so you can make it a couple of days in advance.
To Store: Egg roll in a bowl can be refrigerated for up to 3 to 5 days.
To Freeze: I would not recommend freezing this recipe. Excess water will accumulate after thawing and make the cabbage mushy.
To Reheat: Reheat leftovers in a bowl in a skillet over medium-low heat for the best taste and texture. You can also warm it up in the microwave, but the texture will be soggier.
