My grandmother always made delicious stuffed cabbage, and I have never had it anywhere that compared. I have always found it bland, and too tomato-saucy, which is more like Italian food, not true to the Polish style. This is the closest recipe I can find to Grandma's. If you are substituting tomato sauce rather than tomato soup or juice, you are doing yourself a dis-service. Stuffed cabbage is not meant to be drowned in tomato sauce. It is meant to be served in a thin juice. Also, the addition of the saurkraut like other reviewers suggested gives it a nice kick, which is what my grandmother always did. (You can even add a little into the meat/rice mixture for added flavor.) I use Minute Rice, with no problems--rice is never hard. Good recipe--true to Polish style rather than trying to turn stuffed cabbage into an Italian dish. We also sometimes make instant mashed potatoes on the side, and drizzle the thin juice over it.
