This is a great recipe. One secret ingredient was added which I think takes it to a new level, if that is possible. I added about half a teaspoon of Cinammon to the meat mixture. There is something about the cinammon which enhances all the flavors. You don't really taste "cinammon" you just taste a robust comfort food.
For Sauce I used what I had on hand. 1- 20 oz can tomato puree, 1 -14 oz can diced tomatoes, 1 can Campbells tomato soup, about 1/4 c red wine vinegar.. I mixed the sauce in a bowl and spooned a little of it into the meat mixture. Then I poured the rest on top of the assembled cabbage rolls. Oh so delicious!
I did run out of cabbage leaves before I ran out of meat, so I just formed some meatballs with it and cooked in right in the pan with the cabbage rolls. So love having this recipe to remind us of our Lithuanian grandmother who was an amazing cook and I never saw her measure anything!
