I made this as written. It was delicious! Thank you for sharing! Reminds me of being a kid and my grandmother making stuffed cabbage with it simmering on the stove for hours.
The instructions are easy, and it tasted delicious! We will definitely be making this again!
I've made this three times now and keep getting requests to make it again. I used to buy the ready-made frozen ones, but my family won't even consider those, now! This recipe is wonderful!!!
Had originally planned on making these my usual way on the stove but decided to give my InstaPot a try. Only thing different was the rice wasn’t cooked prior and it called for 2 cans of tomato ...
This makes a LOT of cabbage rolls. Next time, though, I will soften cabbage on stove top, and use a little less tomato sauce. Otherwise: easy and delicious!
I loved the fact that the rice was uncooked but so tender when the product was finished. Very Delicious!
