"This derives from my mothers cabbage roll recipe. Rolling those darn things is too time consuming, so...I came up with this short, less labor intensive version, and best of all tastes the same! Easily can be doubled for a potluck pleaser"

"I made half the recipe using 1 lb ground round and a large bag of cole slaw mix (I'm not too steady with the knife for cutting cabbage heads!) This taste pretty much like my mom's stuffed cabbage but like you said, way easier to put together. Thanks for sharing Uncle 12. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2011."
"My hubby and I loved this! I made it in my crock pot on high for 5 hours. I used less pepper than called for and it was still too much. Next time I will use 1/2 teaspoon instead."
"This is my first review ever! I have to admit though that I used some of the seasonings from my stuffed cabbage recipe. The whole recipe concept I loved. I did not like having to do all the work of rolling them. Here's what I did different. Its just my DH and I so I cut ithe recipe back. I used 1 lb meat and adjusted to that. I did add to the meat and tomatoe mix chili powder, and worchestershire sauce.(my reg recipe calls for that & I like the flavor it gives.) For the sauce I used 1 can soup, 1 can v-8 juice, 1 small can tomato sauce, added the chili pwd, dash cayenne pepper,and worch. sauce. ( I like it saucy!) I thank you for the basic recipe and will deffinatly make it again!!!!"
"Uncle 12! This was fantastic!. So sorry, I used a bit more green pepper for my taste. I used 1 cup each of tomato juice and my homemade bloody mary mix, because I couldn't decide, it turned out wonderful, and very satisfying to not only myself, but my family as well. Eliminating the work of rolling the cabbage rolls was a definate plus and time saver! Chef Daddy, you are comparing a TRADITIONAL cabbage roll recipe to SWEET AND SOUR? Shame on you for discounting Uncle 12's recipe only to plug your own!"
"Easy recipe, but no substance. Doesn't have the flavor and comfort food level like "Grandma Elaine's Unstuffed Sweet and Sour Cabbage"."
"Uncle 12 I really wish you wouldn't drink so much beer while you're cooking. This casserole was swimming in Best Light when you made it last time :-( But thanks to this casserole idea for cabbage rolls I can finally make one of my favorite meals instead of slaving away for a whole day on a head of cabbage! -Talal"
