Cabbage is the mainstay, and there's usually pork. We use fresh pork belly, but ground pork is common, too (more old-fashioned, but delicious). Typically, they include cabbage, green onion, and some combination of meat and seafood like pork belly, octopus, squid, or shrimp. Of course, my recipe is vegetarian, so you won't find any meat or seafood here. Instead, I mix together lots of shaved cabbage, scallions, and panko breadcrumbs.
