We LOVE cabbage rolls, sadly, I don't always have the time to make them the way Grandma always made them. This is the next best thing to them without all the work of making individual cabbage rolls.

This was great! They tasted just like the regular recipe but without all the fuss! Even the kids asked for more & they usually turn their noses up to cabbage! We only used half the head, so next time we'll use all of it. Excellent recipe! Thanks!

I loved the taste of this blend, although I don't personally consider it as a flavour substitute for cabbage rolls. I was in a rush so started cooking the rice on the stove top while browning the meat. (Drained it before adding it to the casserole dish.) I just mixed everything together and baked it with a lid on for 30 mins, and a lid off (after stirring) for another 10. Letting it sit for another 10 will absorb more of the liquid. I'm going to play a bit with it, but it is definitely going to be added to our family faves. Thanks.

Wonderful, used all lean hamburger, doubled the recipe, added some garlic and used tomato juice in place of the soup omitting the water, put it in the crockpot and let it cook all day on low, served with mashed potatoes. Thanks will be making this again.
