Wow...this was very good, especially considering the comedy of errors that occurred the first time I made it. I make a few modifications based on advice from other reviews: I half the recipe, and it fits perfectly in a 9x13 baking dish. I use ground turkey instead of pork. I steam the cabbage in my steamer instead of boiling it (didn't have a pot big enough.) I use a whole cabbage on a half recipe - perhaps I roll them smaller than others do. I use pasta sauce in place of the soup (because somehow between the store and my house, the can of tomato soup escaped the first time I made this, and it was great with tomato sauce.) I use white rice instead of brown, and always increase the amount of rice because the first version I made was a little meatier/heavier than I wanted. I don't add any water at all, and couldn't imagine needing more. There is plenty of liquid and the rolls are always very tender. Labor-intensive but very, very worth it!! It's great leftover too - heats up well in the microwave.
Boyfriend just commented - "I will eat that stuffed cabbage until I bust."
