    I started with Mom's recipe and modified it over the 25 years of my marriage. Also I learned a method of rolling the "pigs" from one of Martha Stewart's books.

      Made this for the first time last night and followed it pretty close except that I used 1 lb ground venison and 1 lb ground beef for the beef portion. Also, my roaster was pretty full and I used a whole quart of my stewed tomatoes so didn't add the chicken broth. The dish turned out FABULOUS and had lots of wonderful flavor. I think by using the venison it helped cut down on the grease. I didn't have cheese cloth but my rolls turned out great anyways. Will definatley make this dish again and again!

      Completely perfected-I'm thrilled after being married 1 1/2 years to benefit from your 25 years of practice plus Mom's recipe! I made a half recipe so did not need to layer. I did not have a cheesecloth and wasn't a role-model roller, so would have needed two cabbages to make a full 24 rolls. This is delicious. Made for the Eastern European stop on the 2008 Zaar World Tour.
