I too modified this recipe and actually got an idea or two from another allrecipe entry "Cabbage Jambalaya." Along with the onion and meat, I added two chopped garlic cloves. I used one can of tomato soup and 1 can of tomato sauce that had the Italian spices in it. In addition, I put in about 1/2 teaspoon each of Italian seasons, basil and oregano. I also added one cup of minute rice when I added in the tomatoes. With these changes we had a most excellent meal--both my husband and daughter went back for seconds!
This was alright but I added an extra can of diced tomatoes & a can of tomato sauce 8oz, to that I added 3 TbSP of brown sugar, 2 TBSP worcheshire sauce, & 3 tsp lemon juice came out more like real cabbage rolls.
My husband loved this recipe, he called it "a definite keeper". Of course the kids wouldn't go near it, but what kid screams for cabbage??? I added salt, pepper, thyme and a bayleaf. Without the addition of these spices, I think it would have been a little bland. Served it over rice, and it was excellent!! Even better the next day. And much easier than rolling all that cabbage!!
This turned out quite well. I did change a few things. I took heed of others advice....I added 1 can of tomato sauce, omitted 1 can of soup. I added seasoning..it needed it, I think.(Basil, oregano, garlic). I also did NOT add the sour cream. I didn't think it needed it. I also added one small can of tomato paste.
My kids, both of whom had never eaten cabbage before, said they loved it. So, that is a good sign!!! I will make this again. The pot was huge...I had enough for leftovers!!!! Wooooohooooooo!!
This was much easier than making cabbage rolls and tasted pretty close to the real thing. I also used one can of diced tomatoes instead of one of the cans of soup. I put white rice in the bottom of a soup bowl and put the cabbage mixture on top. We also sprinkled with parm cheese. The next day for lunch we mixed the rice and cabbage mixture together and re-heated...even better the next day! Great alternative to cabbage rolls when you don't want to do all the work.
taste as good as my home made recipe that I stuff the cabbage leaves but so much easier & faster.
What a GREAT idea! I've been making cabbage rolls for years, but never thought to make them this way. It's sooooo much easier!.... I made a few changes to the recipe and it came out tasting almost exactly like my regular cabbage rolls. Here are the changes I made: I used 1-1/2 pounds of ground beef to make it a little meatier. I used 1 (15.2 oz "value size") can of tomato soup, 1 (15 oz) can of tomato sauce and NO water. I also added a can of drained diced tomatoes. I boiled the sliced cabbage for about 5 minutes before adding it to the meat/onion/tomato mixture to help speed up the cooking time (and to help it all fit in my electric skillet). For seasonings I added salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. I didn't add the sour cream. I had some leftover cooked rice in the fridge, so right before serving I stirred in about a cup of that and heated it through. YUM!
Turned out more like a soup and I needed to add extra spices. I enjoyed it and will make it again, my husband wasn't crazy about it. It did freeze well.
