Reviews for Inside-Out Cabbage Rolls
"Super easy and very good. 5/5 in this household liked it!"
"Delicious! I substituted meat with firm tofu and beef broth with vegetable stock. Also used 12 oz of pizza sauce. Saut?ed the tofu, onions and green pepper before hand then threw everything in the crockpot on high for 4 hours. Added two cups of cooked rice with 45 minutes to go. Served with siracha sauce and it was a hit with all even the picky vegetarian! Also used tomatoes with habaneros instead of chilies :)"
"Not nearly the quick version of an Hungarian classic as it is a Mexican dish with cabbage. Or neither. Has little appeal for me."
"We loved this! I used a 12 oz jar of pizza sauce, and Minute Rice instead of the brown rice......my brown rice didn't turn out. The recipe still turned out great and we will make it again."
"loved this recipe ...didn't have canned tomatoes they called for so i added 1 can no salt tomatoes and some crushed red pepper....also added 1 cup of legumes and cooked with rice when i make it again i would make it in crock pot overnight"
"Love this! We used ground chicken and I added some Sriracha sauce!"
"Surprisingly good & I am NOT a fan of cabbage. :-)"
"On Daniel fast and this made for the perfect dish. Made this as a meatless dish, minus the cheese and added fiesta corn and salt."
"This turned out really really well. I did it in the slow cooker and cooked it on high for 4 hours, adding the cooked rice in the last 45 minutes. I would likely reduce the amount of cabbage I used next time, though I think my "small" head of cabbage wasn't that small because there was a lot of cabbage in this dish. But will definitely make again."
"I was a little hesitant to try this, but it turned out great. I added an extra cup or rice and I went with white instead of brown. Overall, it was a very good meal."
"I made this recipe just as written and it was PERFECT. My boyfriend couldn't say enough good things. I looked like a kitchen super-star!"
"It was healthy and good enough the I don't regret trying it, but I don't know if I would make it again."
"This is an outstanding recipe, very filling. For all Weight Watcher fans, it is 6 points. I have spread this recipe all over the Weight Watcher community. I used 93% hamburger and 2 cups of brown rice which might affect the points."
"I was alittle hesitant to make this but I am so glad I did. It was super. It had a great taste and it made a huge pot full"
"Everything I thought it would be! A new comfort food on the top of my list - the family loved it. The kids didn't know it was cabbage and I didn't tell them!"
"I added some garlic powder and I would definitely add some more rice next time. I used 14 oz diced tomatoes and green chilies because that is what I had on hand, turned out fine."
"My family Loves this recipe. Instead of the hamburger is substituted soy crumbles."
"very good and will try with sausage next time."
"My husband says this is even better than my mother's Russian cabbage rolls."
"Was very good.But i would like to use parmesan on top insted of the chedder."
"My husband was a bit skeptical when he saw me cutting up cabbage, but he was VERY pleasantly surprised! We both really liked this one! I made this with extra lean ground turkey and an extra cup of rice. (I made 2 cups on accident) A very yummy comforting dish. The leftovers are just as good!"
"Very good and easy!"
"My family loved this! My 5 year old actually said "Oh goodie" when I gave him more - Thanks for the great recipie!"
