    happyhousewife's Note:

    This is a traditional Ukrainian recipe passed down generations in our family. It is one of my favorite recipes and is quite easy to assemble. There is nothing like it on this site. It is free of all things considered sweet and none of the fussy tomatoes that are sometimes called for in cabbage rolls. Here is our version. Cut down on prep time by making extra rice with supper the night before!

      *I like to place a couple of pieces of raw bacon on the top of the cabbage rolls before cooking. Also I have made 1/2 a head of cabbage into rolls and froze the other 1/2 of head whole, with no problems*.

      These were wonderful. We had sour cabbage rolls at a friend's place this summer. It was my first time trying them and fell in love. I am so thankful I found this recipe to make my own. They were yummy and very easy.

      Traditional Ukrainian cabbage rolls. This is the authentic recipe/flavor I had been seeking. They taste EXACTLY like my mothers/aunt/grandmothers.

      I use sour cabbage leaves (found some in a local european sausage house)

      This is as good as it gets!
