"My husband has tried many different recipes for cabbage rolls and swears these are the best he has ever had."
Serving Size: 1 (177 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"These were wonderful! I made them to have for dinner last night and got compliments all around the house (husband and father-in-law). I read the reviews and doubled the sauce, and I am definitely glad I did! Other than that, I used dried minced onion (2 tsp.), added garlic powder to the filling (1 tsp.), and I used ground turkey. The rolls cooked for about 8 1/2 hours on low, while I finished my holiday shopping, and they didn't fall apart or anything (mine looked just like the photo from loof)! My husband thought he wouldn't like them when he heard what I was making, but he did! I served the rolls over noodles and I also made some oven-roasted sweet potato slices to go with it. Thanks for this awesome recipe!"
"I have always wanted a great stuffed cabbage dish! My search is over! This recipe is not only DELICIOUS but super simple to make! My store didn't have savoy cabbage so I used regular cabbage and did blance the leaves. The only other change I made was I doubled the recipe and quadrupled the sauce. It wasn't overly saucy when they were done, and the meat was most but the rolls were firm and not falling apart. A VERY enjoyable meal! Thanks for sharing, I can't wait to make it again!"
"Very easy to make. Cabbage rolls can be intimidating, and these are a great way to get started. I used a mix of ground turkey and ground pork and cooked in the slow cooker on high for 5 hours. Turned out great!"
"I haven't cooked in a crock pot in years, and this was a delicious first attempt. I agree with another reviewer that blanching the leaves isn't necessary; my rolls fell apart :( I think I will just layer the meat between whole cabbage leaves next time (like a lasagne) and be done with it! hahahah Great recipe, Soulmates. Thank you!"
"Excellent--the use of savoy cabbage makes all the difference. I did used meatloaf mix which is a combo of hamburger, veal and pork which gave a little more fat content and more flavor. I added a dash of white wine vinegar. The smooth flavor of savoy cabbage compliments the beef mixture very well. I do recommend doubling or tripling the sauce if you want some to pour over the roll during serving. The sauce was very delicious and worth it. It's rare that you make a dish that needs no alteration after cooking. Thanks!"
"Sorry, real Swedish cabbage rolls (k?ldolmar) isn't served with a tomato based sauce."
"Delicious and simple recipe, the only difference I made was to use regular cabbage instead of savoy. Thank you for sharing a recipe we will enjoy over and over!"
"I thought this was very good. I doubled the sauce & added some garlic. Thanks for sharing!"
"These were great cabbage rolls!! I took the advice of other reviewers and doubled the sauce and was glad I did - it was great over rice. DH went crazy over these - they'll definitely be made again - thanks for sharing your recipe!"
"This is a great recipe. My husband said it was the best meal I've ever fixed. As others suggested I doubled the sauce mix and just prior to serving took the extra sauce out of the crockpot and put it on the stove with a little cornstarch to thicken. Other than doubling the sauce and using regular cabbage leaves I made exactly per the directions. Yummy Yummy"
"We are not cabbage fans, but we liked this, even our 7 yr old! Good, basic and easy recipe. Couple changes...used regular green cabbage. I doubled the sauce. Next time I'd triple and make sure both "layers" have enough sauce. Also added salt and pepper to the sauce mixure. Cooked 4 hours on high in 5.5 qt crockpot and it turned out great."
"I am sure that this author was sincere in her attempt to create a lovely recipe. Unfortunately, there absolutely nothing "Swedish" in this recipe for Swedish cabbage rolls. Traditional cabbage rolls Kåldomar as they are called. Are rolled then fired in butter then served with a brown gravy, and served with lingon sauce. Just thought the readers should know the difference."
"Made these just the way you said!!!! They were awesome and everyone was impressed. Thank you!!!!"
"Yummy and easy, but a bit too sweet. Next time, we will cut the sugar."
"Yum. Made these as stated, except used cabbage from the garden. It was easy, terrific, and both my husband, and Dad wanted more. This is quite lovely, and will make again."
"First time I have made or tried Stuffed Cabbage Rolls. My DH, after 26 years of marriage, asked me to make these for him. I followed this as written, except using regular cabbage. I found out that I am not a fan of the rolls and so this is being rated per DH. He felt their wasn't enough flavor/spice to the rolls and sauce. Next time I would also thicken the sauce after it was done cooking and add seasonings. I found it easier to get the cabbage leaves separated from the core by putting the whole head in boiling water and then taking off the leaves and rolling them up. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for the "All You Can Cook Buffet" event in the games forum."
"I don't eat red meat but I made these for my mom & dad (1st time making Galumkis) and they loved them! Making these tonight for my husband! So easy to make becuase of the Savoy Cabbage, I tripled the sauce!"
"Excellent recipe - I did make one change - I used Mexican Stewed tomatoes instead of plain tomato sauce. I loike the savoy cabbage Thanks for a lovely dinner. I can't get the stars to take but I rate this 5 stars"
"Really great, family pleasing recipe. I added 1tsp garlic powder at the suggestion of another reviewer which I think is necessary or they might be pretty bland. I also doubled the sauce which was great to put over rice. Thanks for the keeper!"
"Delicious! I made them over the weekend... the only hard part was not eating them all for supper on Sunday and keep some for lunches during the week."
