We love these cabbage rolls that came out of my Mother's cookbook, but its a bit painstaking boiling the cabbage, wrapping etc. So I came up with this several years ago using the same ingredients. They taste just like the original, but without the hard work. Use my recipe or just use the method with your own family recipe. Mom Approved!
