I was craving cabbage rolls but I didn't have cabbage %u2013 just a can of sauerkraut. I substituted one 12 oz. can of V-8 for the water and tomato sauce and used beef bouillon instead of chicken, but only because I wanted to avoid a trip to the grocery. I also added all the juice from the sauerkraut. It sure hit the spot ... the hubby and I ate it all! Next time I'll plan ahead and add chunks of cabbage. Thanks for sharing this.
