Mom's cabbage rolls were always a hit. I don't know if it was better the second day as there were never any left over.

  3. Several layers of the outer leaves should be soft
    enough to remove from the head.
  4. When you've removed as many as you can, return the head to the steamer to soften more leaves until finished.
  5. Take a sharp knife and remove as much of the central vein as you can.
  6. FILLING: Mix all the other ingredients together in a bowl. Except V8 juice, sauerkraut and tomato sauce (Save for layering with cabbage rolls
  7. Work it with your hands ingredients are thoroughly mixed into the meat.
  8. Now, take some of the mixture and set it in the hollow of a leaf, with the end that was near the core towards you.
  9. Fold the end nearest you about 1/2 way over the mix.
  10. Fold the left side over the mix and then the right side.
  11. Roll about 1/2 turn away from you so that the seam is on the bottom.
    Use toothpicks if necessary (But remove before serving)
  12. Place in a deep electric skillet or dutch oven seam side down and layer with sauerkraut, tomato sauce, then cabbage rolls, then sauerkraut , tomato sauce.
  13. When finished layering pour in the V8 to top of layers.
