Very good. Quick and easy. Subbed bacon fat for the butter and oil. Hmmm... bacon. Omitted the garlic and dill for personal preference. Used the uncovered method for a more tender-crisp cabbage. Eliminating the boiling step and using thawed pierogies was nice. Less dishes and time. However it also provided a much crisper / hard pierogie.

Hi All! I gave this recipe 5 stars because of the great idea... I just "tweaked" it my way a little. I used a ham steak cut up in larger sections, no mushrooms, I used a little ground fennel to taste and sauted 2 apples cut in slices. I layered in a large casserole dish-pierogies,ham,apples,and then cabbage cut in ribbons. I added a pinch of sugar to the cabbage saute as well, nice presentation. Thanks for the great idea! OOOOps! almost forgot-I completely deleted the dill! Whew!
