Don't know if these taste like Shapiro's but they are excellent cabbage rolls. I had enough mixture to make 25 rolls. Not sure which cabbage you used but I used savoy cabbage because it is my favorite. I also used a half/half mix of veal and beef and the meat filling was so yummy. The sauce was very flavorful too and the right amount. But I will probably have to add a bit of tomato juice or sauce when I take out of the freezer for another meal. These are excellent with mashed potatoes or risotto. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe Mary
Mary K.W., I love Shapiro's Stuffed Cabbage. When I lived in Indianapolis we used to go to Shapiro and that's what I would order. Now that I live in Southern California I miss Shapiro. Thank you for this posting. Would you happen to have Shapiro's Macaroni and Cheese recipe, because I LOVE that. Thank you.
Fantastic sauce! Really delicious. I made half with ground beef and the other half vegetarian (with quorn mince) and everyone loved it.
Wow! Is this ever unusual! The combination of ingredients is unique. And so is the flavor. I liked it alot. The lemon surprised my expectations as did the raisins. The meat stuffing was very good. Who would have thought soaking bread in red wine would enhance the flavor. Great recipe Mary. Thanks!
