"This is a quick and easy main dish. My kids don't even like cabbage, but they love this. I usually try to serve it with green beans, new potatoes, corn, and a pan of corn bread. They eat over half the pan every time. Also, the longer it stands the better it tastes."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I saw this recipe on Facebook and now I see it here. I tried it today and added 3/4 cups brown rice and 1 1/2 cups more water. I used spicy diced tomatoes. I cooked it on top of the stove for about 1 1/2 hours on a simmer. It turned out so delicious. I serve it with sour cream on the side. I love cabbage rolls and this is a reasonable facsimile. There will be leftovers for lunches. Yum!
For more flavor, try replacing the plain tomato sauce with Campbell's Tomato Soup.
Nothing annoys me more than someone posting a review when they didn't follow the recipe as written... and now someone posting a 1-star review who didn't even TRY it. Use some common sense people!!! This is delicious as written. If you choose to spice it up or alter it somehow, that's your choice but shouldn't be a criticism of the recipe.
Excellent dish, does need more spice...added additional salt & pepper, along with some brown sugar. Cooked about a 1/2 hour longer than stated, to let flavors blend and to soften the cabbage a little more. Served on a bed of rice.
Only thing I changed was I added 1 cup of water and 1 cup of rice. This tastes just like Halupki's without the mess of boiling the cabbage and wrapping with meat and rice.
This was a very good recipe. However, I made a couple of adjustments. I wanted rice, so I added 1/2 cup of instant rice and added 1 cup of liquid. I try to use beef or chicken broth instead of water in most recipes, so I substituted beef broth in this case. My husband said it was better than rolled cabbage rolls. I agree, and I think the flavors blended better this way. I may never roll cabbage again.
My family enjoys this recipe, but I add about 1/8 cup of vinegar & 1 tbsp of sugar to give it the flavor of the stuffed cabbage they love! Healthy, easy & delicious!!
I've made this dish several times. As written, I'd rate it 3 stars. But, I agree with the other reviews. It needs more spice. I added 2 teaspoons of sweet paprika and it raised my rating to 4 stars.
