I had never made cabbage rolls on top of the stove before. This worked out really good! The sausage in the filling gives a great flavor. Adding the chopped cabbage and potatoes to the filling made it extra nice. The sauce is especially yummy! Thanks for the recipe Jo Ann!

I made cabbage rolls for the first time today, and used this recipe. My boss and his wife, who are cabbage roll finatics, came over for supper and they loved them! My husband and I also found them very delicious! Served them with caesar salad and garlic bread, and raspberry trifle for dessert. Thanks so much for posting!

Taste better than my recipe for cabbage rolls. I like the fact that the potatoes hold the meat firmly, and it is savory, not too salty. I used canned tomato soup instead of tomato sauce, and potato flakes instead of a potato, what I already had in my pantry. Potato flakes is more convenient and less work. (tip) Also noticed using savoy cabbage is much faster/easier to prepare as it comes apart a lot easier then reg. cabbage.

Oh my goodness!!! I think I'm in love!!!! Where have you been all my life? The only change I made was to use all ground beef (skipped the ground pork) and to slow cook these in the oven at 275 for about 4 hours...Melt in your mouth delicious! My husband said they are the best he's ever had/ Thanks JoAnn!

I thought these were great and I liked the small changes in the regular ingredients. I brought these frozen on a camping trip for my meal contribution and everyone loved them. I also made an additional batch of sauce for the sauce eaters. I tried 2 different methods of cooking the cabbage boiled and microwaved. Microwaved was way better and kept it's green color - Use cabbage whole, deeply cored, set uncovered on a carousel or plate 2 1/2 lbs 5 minutes. I just keep peeling leaves off as they cook.

This is a fabulous recipe!!!! The only thing I will do next time is use crushed tomatoes in the sauce instead of tomato sauce and cut the sugar back a bit. The meat filling is probably the best cabbage roll filling I've ever tasted. My hubby went wild for these. Thanks so much for sharing!!!

I've never cooked with cabbage before nor eaten it, so I was surprised that this was so GOOD! I did make a few changes; 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef, a red onion, one cup of rice, a can of rotel, and cayanne pepper. I had more filling than would fit in the rolls, so I shredded the remaining cabbage and cooked them both it in a seperate pan without sauce. It was even better without the cabbage roll and sauce so next time I won't even bother making rolls! I ended up tearing the rolls apart and pulling out the filling anyways. The potato was a nice touch! Excellent recipe!

update: just pulled 1/2 the batch out of the freezer. thawed them overnight & cooked them up-DELICIOUS!! My husband agreed too that they were better than the first 1/2 of the batch. I guess they get better w/ age....we LOVE them!
