I made this for my family, following the recipe as written. My husband and daughter weren't crazy about the raisins, but I enjoyed them. Having grown up in an ethnically mixed farming community in Pa, I have to say that recipes from the many different cultures were swapped and changed all the time. There is no such thing as a dish being from one country, as many regions within a country may prepare that dish differently.
This was a nice soup on a cold night. We love meatballs so it was great having them in there. I didn't add raisins but Im sure it was good with them. Bet its good with frozen meatballs too if you don't have time.
We really enjoyed this. I had to use a large pot, don't have a large enough skillet. Omitted the raisins and lemon juice and added jarred minced garlic to the meat mixture as well as the sauce.Yes, the cook time was off, if you have cooked cabbage before, you know will take a couple of hours of simmering for the cabbage to get tender, so plan accordingly. Also, I do believe this can be frozen, I freeze my cabbage rolls and those turn out fine.I was a little concerned as well, with the omission of eggs for the meatballs, however they formed surprisingly well and stayed intact during careful stirring.
This was so good. I used half beef and half lean pork along with my favorite brown rice. This is a keeper
I made this recipe for my Bulgarian husband who LOVES "wet" food...aka soups and stews. We both really liked it! Very easy. Great taste payoff in a hurry! I did definitely did spice it up, using 1/2 spicy pork and lots of red pepper flake. Try it! Good basic recipe and you can take it from there!
