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!
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!
My husband really enjoys these. I do too. I do make a few minor adjustments however. Sometimes I use ground turkey instead of beef...there isn't much of a difference in flavor. I also use instant rice instead of cooked rice for convenience and I add more sauce and a little extra water to compensate for the rice. My mom used to make these for me as a kid and it brings back nice memories whenever I make them.
