"My family did not enjoy this recipe. It's grossly sweet taste overwhelms everything else. Very disappointed. It should not be called a 'skillet' meal when it is prepared in a dutch oven."

"Good dinner with homemade bread. As others noted, the potatoes did take quite a bit longer to cook, but it was worth the wait. We added salt and pepper which helped offset the overly sweet flavor."

"Love Love Love this recipe!!! I usually end up adding about 5 cans of tomato sauce to the mix. All the flavors blend so wonderful, and it's not too sweet for us, I add all the sugar. However, I'm sure it would taste just fine with out it in there (referring to the sugar). I've been making it since it was published in the magazine."

"I absolutely loved this recipe! I wanted more of a soup, so I changed it up a little. I added a jalepeno and a few carrots in with the cabbage and onion, then I added one more can of tomato sauce and two cans of water. I also seasoned it up with salt pepper and garlic salt. Regardless this is going to be made regularly in my house!"

"I tried this recipe about a year ago. My husband and I thought it was great just the way it is. However, I do agree that the potatoes take a lot longer than the 30 minutes to cook. I usually cook them about an hour. I'm referring to the recipe with the tomato sauce, sugar and paprika...

"I am sorry I would have to say definitely don't even try this recipe I just did and wasted food It is way to sweet at only 1/4 cup sugar and in no way can the potatoes cook in 30 mins. My suggestion is only use half a head cabbage and cut the sugar out and add a can of sauerkraut and cook all ingredients at the same time in a crock pot for 8 hrs that is the only way it has a chance. I would have to say this recipe is gross as listed. I tossed the whole pot."

"I have tried this receipe and it is great. I have experimented with this receipt and eliminated the tomatoe sauce and substituted grilled brats that I have cut up. I have also used this receipe with braised short ribs. I braised short ribs, removed added 1 cup dry red wine let alcohol bleed off, then added all the vegetables and sauted till tender, added remainig ingredients and the short ribs and slow baked at 375 for 4 hours depending how your stove operates. This has become our new down home meal. - JP in WY"
