5 stars (if you follow other reviewers' advice). I am so glad I read the other reviews, because they turned out perfectly! I, too, steamed the entire head of cabbage first, added some garlic powder to the beef mixture (I used 1/8 tsp - perfect!), doubled the sauce (a must!), and baked at 350 (covered with foil) for an hour, instead of using the slow cooker. The only things I would change include using 3/4 tsp. pepper (1 1/4 tsp. was too spicy), and increase the onion to 1/2 cup for more flavor (which I did, and it was great!). I measured exactly 1/4 cup for each roll, and I ended up with 10 rolls. If you are pressed for time, you can substitute 1 Tbl. dried minced onion for the fresh onion. The second time I made this, I sprinkled some salt on the rolls before adding the sauce, and that helped give it more flavor. One more note: be SURE and use VERY lean beef - you don't cook the meat before rolling it into the cabbage leaves, so there will be no way to drain off the fat. Thanks for the recipe!
