  1. Prepare the Cabbage: Begin by carefully removing the leaves from the cabbage. Blanch the leaves in boiling water for a few minutes until they are soft and pliable. Drain and set aside to cool.
  2. Make the Filling: In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground meat, finely chopped onion, minced garlic, a generous pinch of salt, freshly ground black pepper, and dried marjoram. Mix well. Add in the eggs and heavy cream, and blend until the mixture is thoroughly combined.
  3. Form the Rolls: Take a cabbage leaf and place a portion of the meat mixture in the center. Fold in the sides and roll up the leaf to encase the filling. Repeat with the remaining leaves and filling.
  4. Dredge in Flour: Lightly dust each cabbage roll with all-purpose flour, shaking off any excess.
  5. Fry the Rolls: Heat a generous amount of cooking oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the cabbage rolls and fry until they are golden brown on all sides. You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your pan.
  6. Serve: Once all the cabbage rolls are fried and crispy, transfer them to a serving dish. They can be served hot as a main dish, accompanied by your choice of side, such as mashed potatoes or a light salad.

Enjoy your homemade stuffed cabbage rolls, a hearty and comforting dish perfect for any meal!
