These were wonderful! I made them to have for dinner last night and got compliments all around the house (husband and father-in-law). I read the reviews and doubled the sauce, and I am definitely glad I did! Other than that, I used dried minced onion (2 tsp.), added garlic powder to the filling (1 tsp.), and I used ground turkey. The rolls cooked for about 8 1/2 hours on low, while I finished my holiday shopping, and they didn't fall apart or anything (mine looked just like the photo from loof)! My husband thought he wouldn't like them when he heard what I was making, but he did! I served the rolls over noodles and I also made some oven-roasted sweet potato slices to go with it. Thanks for this awesome recipe!

I have always wanted a great stuffed cabbage dish! My search is over! This recipe is not only DELICIOUS but super simple to make! My store didn't have savoy cabbage so I used regular cabbage and did blance the leaves. The only other change I made was I doubled the recipe and quadrupled the sauce. It wasn't overly saucy when they were done, and the meat was most but the rolls were firm and not falling apart. A VERY enjoyable meal! Thanks for sharing, I can't wait to make it again!

Very easy to make. Cabbage rolls can be intimidating, and these are a great way to get started. I used a mix of ground turkey and ground pork and cooked in the slow cooker on high for 5 hours. Turned out great!
