Old-Fashioned Cabbage Rolls
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 1-1/2 hours
Unlike some who say they followed the recipe and then proceeded to add ingredients and modify, I followed ithe recipe exactly. In my opinion it was just ok because it was bland and needed more seasoning. I couldn't taste the dill or the cayenne at all and it needed salt. I'm going to work at making some changes because I have memories of really liking cabbage rolls as a child.
i always saute my onions in butter i noticed and cook the rice i noticed you added both raw
It takes me around 2.5 hours to make mine. I also make in oval pan. Everyone is different. I was taught to fill with water and vinegar to top and oven at 350.
I always freeze the entire head of cabbage. Take it out to thaw...it will take a day or so.but the leaves will be very soft and easy to roll. I usually trim the main vein of the leaf with the flat of a sharp knife to make it thinner.
These are so good. I followed the recipe I added dry onion soup mix to the meat and rice mixture and wrapped the rolls with cooked bacon like my grandmother did. I will definitely be making this again
The basics of this recipe are good but I tweaked a few things trying to replicate my grandmother’s recipe which was never written down. I agree with other reviews it needed more liquid but I attribute that to my choice of using a slow cooker rather than the oven since it was 85 degrees outside! I used one can of tomato soup and 4 small serving cans of tomato juice, then just enough water to barely cover the rolls in the slow cooker. I also added an egg to the filling. I also think this will taste better the second day so I’d probably make it a day ahead next time. And using raw rice worked fine in the slow cooker but I’m not sure 90 minutes in the oven with raw rice would work as well.
Delicious!! my husband is not a fan of cabbage but loved this recipe and said he'd eat it this way. Followed the directions but possibly didn't cook the cabbage as long as I should have. The leaves came off good but weren't soft as shown in the video, still worked out great though!
I thought it was terrible. Can’t beloved I spent all theme on a pot of crap. Just wrong. I never rate anything but this just sucked. Very disappointed.
This recipe as it is seems too tart or bitter or something because of the tomatoes... and or sauce. not sure exactly. The way I was taught was do the cabbage as stated... in a roasting pan, put catchup and brown sugar tog. mix till you get a sweet/tangy taste to suit. add a bit of water. just enough to make a creamy type texture to the mix. add the cabbage and cook till done. for the inside of the rolls you can use meats as described in this recipe. or you can use just ground beef, cooked w onion added, mix tog w rice, salt and pepper to taste. (cook onions first, then add grnd beef, salt and pepper to taste, then add uncooked rice)
This recipe is fantastic! I added 1/2 condensed mushroom soup in meat mixture and the rest in the sauce. We also like to eat it with sour cream and chopped cilantro, which give it a zing. Will make this again and again! Thank you.
