Involtini are foods in which a stuffing is rolled up in a wrapping of some sort, often thin-sliced meat, poultry, or fish. In this classic recipe, cabbage leaves make a delicate, edible wrapping for a ground-pork stuffing, fragrant with spices. Milk-soaked bread keeps the meat mixture moist, and an egg serves to bind it. Once assembled, the rolls are browned lightly in olive oil to add a bit of flavor, then braised in a tomato sauce seasoned with vinegar to enhance the flavors.
