    This is one of my fav. dishes. Today I made a few changes - chopped up about 1/2 lb pastrami in place of bacon - added pastrami & barley to cooked n drained hamburger w/onion. Added approx 1 cup tomato juice and 'some' ground carraway. Sprayed my baking dish - patted hamburger mixture into bottom of pan. Shredded average size cabbage and patted on top of meat mixture. Mix I-6 oz can of tomato paste, enough beef broth to make about 2 cups, add 1 cup tomato juice - 1 can of stewed tomatoes w/ liquid - broken up. Pour - spread mixture over top of cabbage. Cover bake at 375 for 1 hour or till cabbage is cooked. Sprinkle 1 cup of your fav shredded cheese on top. I had 3 slices of rye bread I crumbled w/melted butter and spread over cheese. Return to oven to melt cheese and toast breadcrumbs. YUM!

    I only used 1 tsp of the Caraway seeds, we feel if it had no Caraway seeds it would have been much better lol

    This dish won my husband over to barley! Fantastic. I used 1/2 tsp of caraway and 1/2 tsp dill and added it right before adding the tomato juice. Swapped ground chicken for the beef and used V8. Everything else followed exactly. I won't add the extra salt next time because it was plenty salty. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe! I'll be making it often.

    This was such comfort food for me! I used ground turkey and turkey bacon, so the flavor was different I'm sure. I only used 1/2 t caraway that I ground up a bit with my mortar and pestle. I used 2 cans of V8 and apple juice to make up the remaining 3 cups. I baked it for 45 minutes and didn't add any cheese, but I did serve it with sour cream. Thank you so much for this recipe!
