This was easy to prepare but did use lots of bowls. I prepared it the night before and put it in the fridge- then put it in the crock pot when I left for work. My family (husband and two teenagers) loved it! I even omitted the salt and used 1/4 cup of brown sugar instead of a half. Thanks for a great recipe.
This was ok. The meat was a little dry and the rice a little crunchy. I think I would cook the rice before stuffing cabbage. I also didnt have any tomato sauce so I used a can of tomato soup. The sauce for this was wonderful. I love sweet sauces. Will try and make again.
