My Grandma and Grandpa we're polish, and this has influenced my cooking a lot I'm a male from Detroit Michigan and watched my grandma cook when I was young, one of my favs. was her stuffed cabbage! I've been making it for over 40 years! LOL! It's cheap, because you buffer the beef with rice and it helps stretch it out, and you know how good cabbage is for you! I use a sweet tomato based sauce over them and they are all most a meal in them selves! In fact I'll warm up a couple the next day for lunch and call it good! How about you have you ever had this treat? Have you ever made stuffed cabbage? Would you like to try them out? Their easy but a little time consuming, in the oven or I'm lucky and have an electric roaster, their great! and really good for parties! Give me some feed back! tdemex

I love stuffed cabbage rolls. And my Grand parents came over from Hungary, so i guess the ones we ate were Hungarian style. My cabbage is just coming in from the garden and that is what i use some of it for i will roll about 100 of them and freeze them for all year. I use my grandmas recipe for them. I will also be making some fresh Cole slaw. You are so right that they are time consuming, but they are well worth all the effort.

I didn't know you could freeze them, I put rice in the ground beef, and that's ok? I'd imagine the Hungarian and Polish aren't much difference. I make my sauce a little on the sweet side, add some brn. sugar to it! Do you freeze the sauce with it? I love cabbage period, and cole slaw is a very favorite of mine, I add pineapple to mine along with some of the juice to the dressing! Cooking anything worth while is usually time consuming! LOL! Take care you sure have lots of banners on your profile, must keep you busy, all those sites? tdemex

When i freeze them i do it before i cook them..Just roll them up and put them in freezer bags. i add all the rest when i thaw to cook. I make mine with both hamburger, and ground pork, rice, onion...salt and pepper, a little worschiser sauce. and i cook mine in sour kraut in the bottom of the pot, and i also put some on the top and add tomato juice. I like the flavor from the kraut. I love pineapple ill have to try that when i make some coleslaw the next time, it sounds good. Yes im in a few programs, that i make a little with each month

Oh, you make me hungry! (All I've had so far today is coffee :-) Want to explain how you make them? I guess you don't use a recipe as such (after forty years!) but I'd love to try making tohose cabbage rolls!

This sounds so good right now. It reminds me of the cabbage rolls my grandmother use to make. I have not had any since she last made them and she's now deceased but I guess there is no reason why I cannot make them myself! In fact, now I have a real taste for them so I will have to make some soon.

My grandma made something like that, it was suppose to be ground pork but not too many in my family liked it so she used ground beef and rice rolled in cabbage then she poured tomato juice over it and baked it. It was pretty good but I like a lot of juice with mine to get rid of the cabbage taste LOL
