Reviews for Cabbage & Meatballs
"After reading the reviews, I did tweak this recipe and it came out wonderful! Instead of using tomato juice, I used spaghetti sauce. And, I made my own meatball recipe. I just couldn't imagine vinegar or pickles in my meatballs! LOL! Made some mashed potatoes to go with it and it was perfect!"
"Very tasteless. I had to add worcestershire and soy sauce. If you make this, add the worcestersire and soy sauce to the hamburger. Putting it in the sauce doesn't flavor the meat. I love cooked cabbage, but that's the only benefit. I think we'll slice the meatballs and add bbq sauce on a sandwich maybe."
"Very good! I used vegetable juice instead of regular tomato juice to give it a little more kick! I will definitely be adding this to our menu."
"I added more sauce to the cabbage mixture after adding the meatballs, this will become a favorite, go to recipe for my husband and I!"
