This is my Grandma's recipe she brought from Czechoslovakia. It's called 'aluski capusto.' It's my favorite and I hope you like it too.

I tell ya my kids can be hard to please. Each has their own taste but this was an absolute hit. I have a family of 5 and it was all gone but 1 tiny bowl. I doubled the dumplings and put out soy sauce and teriyaki sauce to top it off. Simple easy low cost and the family loved it. I'm going to add some things to this recipe so check it out and let me know what you think. Read More

Very authentic and true to the old recipe. Those of you who complain don't understand "authentic". Change it to your liking but quit harping, learn to cook and realize where the recipe originated. Bunch of dummies! Read More

Overall this was a different and fairly tasty recipe. I sprinkled the cabbage with soy sauce while cooking and thought it was delicious though would have been good with just salt too. The dumplings (which I doubled to have enough for the cabbage) were very heavy and bland. The dumplings need to be tiny. Next time I make the dumplings I will double the recipe add 1 tsp of baking powder for some fluffiness and some salt for a little more flavor. Read More

If using soy sauce as other suggest omit the salt for seasoning as it makes it too salty. Yummy dish and so easy to make! I was confused about when the dumplings were ready but it took about five minutes in boiling water. Read More

We (me hubby and kiddos) like this best with the butter omitted and using 4 slices of bacon as the fat then served over homemade egg noodles. Read More

This is really good but I too had issues with the dough.. Mine was watery and I had to keep adding flour. Just a warning for others who try the recipe. Read More

This was very easy to make and a very quick tasty side dish. My husband loved it so much there was none leftover! I doubled the dumpling portion of it which was perfect for us. A little pepper and you're all set! Nothing fancy here - but it would be good for a quick snack too. Read More
