I was searching for a recipe for Cabbage Rolls, that would be "like" or close to the one's my mom made. After looking over several I decided to make Irmgard's because they were the closest I could find to my mom's. I was not let down at all. These took me down memory lane. Made them as is, NO changes (I do not like doing that). for me: A KEEPER.
I grew up with a nana who made cabbage rolls like this. This recipe is as close to hers as I have made over the years. The method and techniques you describe really made the difference. I used crushed tomatoes instead of tomato juice. We had them as part of our Christmas dinner (and for several days after since I had tripled the recipe) and they were very, very good. Thank you, Irmgard for sharing this recipe.
Been searching a long time for this recipe!!!thank you...i just added a little paprika to the stuffing. however i think the filling would be just as great with mince and finely chopped red capsicum.diana xxx
