I made a bunch of changes to this, but I still stuck with the overall theme and same ingredients. First, I cut the cabbage into four sections and peeled of the layers. I then boiled those for about 5 minutes. I used ground turkey. I used 1/4 tsp of all of the spices. I browned the turkey and then added the spices to it. I divided everything up into thirds and made three layers of cabbage, then meat mixture, then rice (I used 1/3 cup), then sauce, then cheese (I used 2-3 cups - a handful per layer, lol). I put it in the crockpot on low for about 6-7 hours. IT WAS WONDERFUL! Thank you SO much for such an amazing dish!
This was great. I was just pleased at how easy it was to throw in the crockpot, not expecting to love it. My kids even like it, and this isn't thier kind of meal. I did cut the cheese in half, and used 1 lb of light sausage for the meat and about 2 cups of cooked brown rice, layering it all like you would a lasagna. Thanks for a great recipe!
I wasn't overly impressed with this recipe when I first made it and planned on giving it two or three stars. However, I reheated the leftovers the next day and it tasted so much better and we actually enjoyed it much more. I did make some modifications - I used about six cloves of minced garlic in place of garlic powder as I always use fresh when possible over powders and salts - and I also used sharp cheddar instead of mozzarella.
I made a half recipe w/some chgs, but felt I was still loyal enough to the heart of the recipe to review it honestly. I used grd lamb as beef & pork are costly in Iceland. DH isn't fond of tomato-sauced recipes, so I subbed cream of mushroom soup for the spachetti sauce. This was so yummy that he remarked how good it was & asked what was in it - no clue at its heart was a half head of cabbage! This is my idea of "comfort food". It doesn't get much better than a tasty & easy to fix 1-dish meal + admiring smiles from your DH. Thx for posting.
