  • Reviews

  • “I put my cabbage in the freezer and take it out the night before I make them, this saves a lot of time and moisture in the kitchen.”

  • “This recipe is NOT quick & easy.It IS very bland, however.I prepared it exactly according to recipe.It’s healthy and filling, but very very boring.I won’t be making this one again.Sorry.”

  • “The recipe is great as a starter and it was easy to put together and thank you so much for sharing, I had no idea where to start :)I used fresh homegrown tomatoes, homegrown onions and added 4 Serrano peppers (we like it spicy) and 4 chopped cloves of garlic, turmeric, Italian seasoning, ground pepper. Also I added about 3/4 cup of uncooked rice to the meat mixture – baked for 45 minutes until nice and bubbly then put parmesan cheese on top – turned the oven off and let it sit for about 15 minutes – it was delicious and I appreciate you sharing!”

  • “My family loved this, and it was our first experience with stuffed cabbage rolls.Of course, I adapted the tomato portion of the sauce recipe to what I had, using a 23-oz. can of crushed tomatoes, and half a 4-oz. tube of SUN-DRIED tomato paste. The sauce was very flavorful, and yes, the filling itself, less so, but with some sauce in each bite, it didn’t matter. Thank you!
    P.S. When the hour of baking time had passed, I turned the oven off, busy with fresh green bean preparation, then ran out the door to pick the kids up.Result? An extra hour in a cooling-down oven, with no bad consequences.And I didn’t have to reheat it when we were ready for dinner!”

  • “I have to agree with someone elses rating! Bland and NOT quick and easy! I made the recipe exactly. It had way too much tomato sauce, and no flavor in the meat. I will definitly not be making this again.”

  • “This is a really great version of a classic comfort food. I substituted about three cloves minced fresh garlicfor the garlic powder, and added a little salt and freshblack papper to the meat mixture and a few red pepper flakes to the sauce. Just an FYI; it made up just enough for a 9 x 13 baking dish. Thanks CoolMonday!”

  • “Love this recipe and my husband does too! The only thing I added to the mix was garlic and lots of freshly ground pepper and that made it extra fabulous. Also switched out the beef and pork for Lean Ground Turkey. Absolutely delicious!”

  • “Very good. Is there an easier way to cook this cabbage?”

  • “I made these when I had visiting relatives this past weekend and they were a HUGE hit!I added garlic instead of the garlic salt and more of it.My “rolls” turned out more like “packages” though.Yummy!”

  • “There seems to be astep missing from this recipe!”

  • “I tried this recipe and I thought it was good, but I think I will try it with a few cloves of garlic and maybe some cajun spice next time. It’s missing a little kick. However, if you like you’re food mild in flavour, the recipe is great as is.”

  • “The recipe came out great. I omitted the pork since, I didn’t have any. Besides that, I followed along with what was writte. I would make again. Thanks for the recipe.”

  • “This is a terrific easy dish to put together. I needed something quick to put together and had and wanted to use cabbage so this fit the bill perfectly. I added some garlic powder to the sausage/ground beef mixture and decreased the allspice to 1/4 tsp. Instead of butter, I used 1/2 tsp. of olive oil to soften the onions. To this vegetable mixture, I added kalamata olives, (pitted) green pepper, and a fresh garlic clove minced finely. In went the tomatoes, (I used fresh tomatoes chunked up from the garden) and finally the sauce and paste. Roasted quietly in the oven and what a delight to partake. I can see where this would be great for OMAC. Thank you!”

  • “Very good! I would cook the cabbage a little bit longer so the leaves are more tender when your eating them. It made 10 cabbage rolls for me and It lasted through many meals. I served them with a baked potato which went well because of the sour cream. Th sour cream really makes this dish!”

  • “This was a great recipe and was enjoyed by my husband and I several times with left-overs!I used olive oil to saute the onions and used Italian seasoning because I didn’t have the thyme.Thanks for such a great meal!!!I am adding it to our dinner rotation and will be making it again this week!”

  • “REALLY good – although not what I would consider quick – peeling the cabbage leaves off took time – I dropped in boiling water, took out, peeled a few and repeated – that was time consuming but it was SO worth it – great recipe!!”

  • “Love this recipe just like old times, my mother used spanish rice instead of regular and mixed with meat mix”

  • “this was a wonderful meal, my family can be somewhat critical of things that i make, but this one was satisfying to everyone! i will definatley make again. i did leave out the pork sausage and it was still very delicious, i served it with mashed potatoes and corn. thanks!”

  • “It’s been a long time since I made stuffed cabbage rolls and this recipe was very enticing…It was delicious..Contained everything needed for a healthy meal including taste and looks.Will make it many times.”
