    I would give this 10 stars out of 5. It is probably the 20th recipe I've tried from this site and by far the best (even though we enjoyed so many others). This is a must try - must taste - don't want to miss. My kids are stealing the left overs for school lunch. Note-Cook the rice ahead of time - 1/18/09

    I loved the ease of this recipe and we'd never had stuffed cabbage at all but this was pretty good. It's definitely something we can eat every now and then. - 2/12/12
