Notes

After boiling the cabbage leaves, they should be soft and tender.
To speed things up, the cabbage leaves can be steamed in the microwave. Simply place in a microwave-safe bowl along with a couple tablespoons of water and microwave covered on high (100%) for about 6 to 8 minutes. For even cooking, it's best to rearrange the leaves in the middle of the cooking time.
