This was easy to make, and the house smelled wonderful. The flavor of the meat mixture was delicious, and there was lots of yummy tomato sauce. My son said it was like meatloaf inside a cabbage leaf. Thanks for sharing! Made for FYC tag game.

Very nice! These had a great flavor and were really easy to put together. I love that they're made in the crockpot.

QueenBea I made these and they turned out very good, the flavor was awesome, here are a few changes I made. I used plain tomato juice in place of V8, used a small white onion instead of the dry flakes, I didn't use panko I used regular bread crumbs. Just so if anyone makes this recipe I never cooked the beef it did cook in the crockpot. thank you for your recipe, I'll make this again, I love the slowcooker method!

Excellent recipe - loved making them in the Crock Pot. An old Polish lady once told me "When you are making Cabbage rolls always put the last leftover leaves over the rolls it will keep them very moist and increase the flavour". I don't know if it did anything extra for this recipe because I am sure it didn't need it - 12 lovely great flavoured cabbage rolls - 8 in the freezer for a rainy day. Thsnks Bea for yet another super recipe
