"IN OUR area of Pennsylvania, cabbage rolls are frequently served at special occasions of all kinds. These versatile roll-ups can be stuffed with pork or other kinds of fillings. Though we've tried some of the others, my family always goes back to the ground beef—it just tastes best to us."

  1. Cook cabbage in boiling water only until leaves fall off head. Reserve 14-16 large leaves for rolls and set aside remaining cabbage.

  4. Remove rolls and cabbage. If desired, sauce may be thickened by boiling over high heat. Spoon sauce over rolls and cabbage and serve immediately. Yield: 4-6 servings.

"These rolls are great. However I use 2 cans of soup to get enough sauce to cover all of the rolls."

"I also have been making these for years and use a mixture of beef, pork & veal, 1 egg and about 1 teaspoon of garlic powder along with the salt & pepper. After making the rolls, I chop up the leftover cabbage and line the pan with the cabbage. I then mix a can of stewed sliced tomatoes with the tomato soup and pour that over the top. The seasonings of the stewed tomatoes helps flavor the cabbage a bit more!"
