My mom has been making stuffed cabbage for years, & this is by far one of the best recipes ever.

I don't understand how the previous reviewer found the meat filling too sweet - the recipe clearly calls for using the brown sugar for the sauce - NOT the meat filling.. Galumpki's are meant to have a 'bland' filling, so as to be enhanced by the delicious sweet tomato sauce.. Anyhow, this is pretty similar to the recipe I've been using for at least 20 years.. Although I grew up in a Polish household, and love my mother's galumki(sp), I once tried a recipe from a 50's cookbook and prefer that, which is 'this', lol.. the only difference is that I have started added strips of green pepper to the sauce, I love the flavor it gives..
