Cabbage Rolls II
Funny....I thought I followed the directions exactly, but I guess I didn't! I just noticed another reviewer caution about using a lean meat since the meat isnt' cooked before stuffing the cabbage! Well, this is the 2nd time I am making it, and I cooked the meat both times before stuffing and it is still delicious! I doubled the recipe and made 16.....and quadrupled the sauce quantity (I had just enough with a single batch the last time, but prefer more.....then I placed in 4 portioned out freezer dinner containers that I can pop into the crock pot. This worked well the last time. Also STEAMED the cored head of cabbage this time, and it was much easier to work with than boiling. I didn't notice this the last time I made it, but tasting the meat stuffing tasted VERY peppery! I am hoping once I cook it in the crock pot, the sauce will tone it down....that is what prompted me to look at reviews after I made it, I wanted to see if others said the same thing, and they did! If it tastes as good as it did the first time I made it, I'll continue to use the stated amount of pepper in the recipe...just can always add more to taste when serving! This recipe is very tasty!

Barbequed Marinated Flank Steak
Made exactly as directed...marinated for 24 hours in the fridge. My husband gave it a 5, I gave it 4 stars.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast
This was delicious! I, as others, was skeptical, but it really was very good. Even better the next day with some au jus.
