Update from the Author:
Robbie, There are a few changes that make this even more spectacular
than it already is. With the sauerkraut, if you drain it and put in a
large bowl, add 3 cans of tomato soup with equal parts of water, and the
bacon either ground in meat grinder or minced, and about 2 cups of the
cooked meat mixture. Stir well. Pour a generous layer on the bottom of
the pan. Then a layer of rolls then sauerkraut mixture. Repeat until all
is used. Be sure to complete the top with a layer of the sauerkraut

husband, who is Slovenian, always used kielbasa
in this rather than bacon. That is the way his
grandmother always made it.
note to say that these cabbage rolls were
excellent. I cut the ingredients in half as I was
not making them for a large group. The only thing
I would do different next time is add an extra
can of soup and keep the sauerkraut juice in to
give more of a gravy to put over rice. It was
enjoyed thoroughly by all. Thanks again for
putting your recipe on the Internet.
recipe pleased a group of college students (6).
Added the kielbasa - great tip! Split it in half
first, and ladled sauce over it. I will
definitely use this recipe again!
aunties taught me this dish with tomato juice,
baked in a roaster with lots of sauerkraut,
garlic, and onion.Use pork and beef so meat isn't
dry. Layer in the roaster - sauerkraut, rolls,
tomato juice, onion, garlic, bacon, more juice,
kraut, rolls, etc. You can also throw in all the
scraps of cabbage chopped up mixed with the
sauerkraut. (They don't waste anything!) Small
quantities work well in a crock pot. Hungarians
use paprika instead of tomato and smoked
pork/sausage. If you tuck the ends of the cabbage
leaf inside, you don't need toothpicks.
"former" life, I was married to a man
with "Hungarian" roots! Well, one day
his aunt came visiting, and she made stuffed
cabbage rolls! this is the closest that I have
ever come to that "authentic" recipe.
this lady was born in Austria/Hungary (before the
counties were split). How awesome to find this
recipe! thank you so much.
cabbage rolls are great!! This was my first time
making them and they turned out delicous.
Thanks for the recipe. I was looking for a good one to prepare for a
New Year's Eve party. I usually put the cabbage in a bowl of water,
cover it with stretch wrap and microwave it on high power to loosen
the leaves. It's a lot easier than dealing with a huge head of
cabbage and a boiling pot of water
I really liked the
cabbage rolls. In fact they were so good. The problem I found when
making the recipe was your moms suggestion about putting the meat in
the sauerkraut.. The rice did not cook like it should have. Not sure
what I did . But besides that it was great. Even gong to make it for
a party. I love this. Reminds me of my heritage.
