I made this a couple of months ago for a friends get together and everyone loved it so much they said the pot wasn't going back home until it was empty. I put it all in a crockpot for the convience of travelling with it once it was cooked to keep it warm.

This is so much easier then doing the traditional cabbage rolls, definitely a keeper! I added 1 tsp worcestershsire sauce and 1/4 cup ketchup to the tomato soup.

This turned out good and I made it simpler by using a bag of pre-washed cabbage salad. I used only one can of tomato soup, along with one 14 oz. can of no salt added plain tomato sauce. I also increased the ground beef to 1 pound. I will certainly be making this again.

If you like stuffed cabbage, this recipe is much easier than rolling everything into cabbage leaves. It's easy, a crowd pleaser & delicious. To add an extra zippy taste, add chili powder in to the soup & water mixture.

Easy to make and tastes just like Mom used to make but without the hassle. I filled a 9 X 13 glass baking dish with chopped cabbage, used a lot more ground beef (1 1/2-2 lbs.)& 26 oz. can of soup, and also substituted Orzo for rice, as my boyfriend doesn't care for rice, and he loved it. I always use Campbell's soup, as it has a distinct flavor and that's what Mom used also. I didn't care for the cheese on top because Mom never put cheese on the stuffed cabbage, but that's just my taste. This is one of those dishes that taste better the next day, and I may start making double batches for that reason. It's so easy and so good that it's my go-to dish when it's stormy and you want comfort food to warm you up. Definately passing this recipe on to family and friends!!

This recipe was ok...but it was lacking something???? I'm not sure what...too much cabbage not enough other things. Maybe needs some more veggies, etc??
