This turned out great! I used 8 oz. of Rao brand pizza sauce instead of the Hunt's tomato sauce. Will make it again.

I love stuffed cabbage rolls and this is awesome, when i don't have the time to make them. After reading the recipe, and the reviews, I tweeted as follows. --Diced tomatoes, not stewed--dont worry about breaking them up. --14.5 oz can of tomato sauce, not 8oz --3-4Tb. of brown sugar --4-6 good shakes of worcestershire sauce --raisens to taste --Salt to taste--add to sauce and taste

Extremely bland! I read the positive reviews and double checked the recipe. I won't be making again. I tweaked a ton after tasting near the end and was still difficult to get where my kids would eat it.

Made this last night and my husband is still raving about it! Reminded him of his Moms stuffed cabbage rolls when he was a kid. Only drawback I found is that it isn't the most beautiful meal to look at so it's lucky the flavor makes up for that. Watch out that you don't burn the rice as it's hidden under the cabbage. Mine was almost ruined when our dinner was delayed a few minutes.

Any recipe I find online I use as a base. Thanks! I prefer my rice al dente so it's always cooked on the side. I prefer my cabbage to have a little bit to it so it's more of a fried cabbage and I add green and red peppers and jalapeño to it. This is usually rolled and baked in the oven yes. This becomes such a different recipe I think this way!
