    Kevin Young's Note:

    Yet another I've pulled out of "The Czechoslovak Cookbook". Of course I had to add garlic to the recipe :) Also for a little extra kick you can use some spicy bloody mary mix instead of the cream of tomato soup. I hope you enjoy this, we sure do.

      This dish could be much better if additional seasoning was added.The cabbage was crisp but bland this dish needs some re-working.But was fun to try.

      I thoroughly enjoyed making this recipe. It is fun to make. And the results were delicious. Since I try to watch fat content, I substituted ground turkey. I served the dish on Christmas Day to my friends who visited and the reviews were all outstanding.
