Put cabbage in large pot of salty, boiling water to wilt, about 5 minutes. Remove cabbage from boiling water and separate leaves.
Combine next 11 ingredients and mix well. Hold one cabbage leaf in one hand and fill with one tablespoon full of meat mixture and roll. Place in large pot with cooking oil. Arrange cabbage rolls evenly. Start cooking on high heat until it boils, then lower to medium low. If too much liquid forms, remove with large spoon. Cook until tender, about 1-1/2 hours.
