Helpful hints

  • Cabbage rolls can be cooked in a slow cooker on low setting for 6 to 8 hours instead of baked in the oven.
  • If you are following a low-potassium diet, be aware 2 cabbage rolls are equal to 2 vegetable servings. Consuming extra servings of fruits or vegetables can cause high potassium levels.

Cabbage Rolls made with Turkey

I like to try this recipe sounds very good! I might substitute with ground chicken does not have cholesterol like turkey! I like the slow cooker idea as well! I will add a small amount of granulated garlic & omit the sugar. My experience when cooking red cabbage is that it has a slightly sweeter taste than green cabbage!

Definitely not like Grandma used to make. I follow these directions almost to a T, except used 03% lean ground beef. The filling came out dry and not very flavorful. Almost seems like it was way overcooked. Also, sauce was too sugary tasting; and that was the part I was really looking forward to. Now I have to suffer through eating the other 8 of these boogers! Yikes!!

I used roasted red pepper and low sodium tomato sauce to cook the rolls in. Added some garlic ( I use garlic in everything). I substituted 1/2packet of stevia for the sugar. Ground Turkey is wonderful and full of flavor. I have replaced all my ground beef recipes with it

Used ground beef & cooked rice cause that's what I had. Half browned, then drained, beef first since it had 20% fat. My husband rated it 6 (of 5) stars!

We are having a family dinner and decided to make this. Only thing is what would you recommend for side dish as well? Dietitian comment: I think a nice sourdough roll or a piece of crusty french bread would compliment this dish. A low potassium dessert could also be included-[INVALID]s, pie or cake or you could go with a low potassium fruit such as fresh berries.

I used very lean hamburger for this recipe, because I didn't have any turkey, used 1 small can tomato sauce(low sodium) instead of tomato paste, added a little garlic powder and a teaspoon of Mrs.Dash,used only one egg,and cooked it in a slow cooker for around 4 and a half hours on high setting.They were "Excellent", we loved them and will make them again, since this made twelve, we had 2 apiece this evening and I froze the rest, so we will have two more meals already made, Wonderful!!

I haven't tried this yet..but I do plan on it..I am new and just seeing this for the 1st time..I am curious to know if the sugar that this recipe requires makes this taste sweet at all? Can it be ommited without ruining the taste? I can't post without rating so I will give it 5 starts because it sounds so good. Moderator comment, You can omit the sugar without making a big change in the taste. It will still be tasty!

I made the cabbage rolls and instead of tomato paste I used canned red peppers. It cuts down on the potassium

really, really good. I used left-over cooked rice and low sodium tomato paste. Also, I, too, used the slow cooker..on low for 4 hours. Served it with boiled new potatoes (the tiny ones) We didn't have a dessert because by that time, dinner, I had used up my limit of P and K.

This was excellent - I used the "crock pot" to do my cooking, and "low sodium" tomatoe paste - my husband and I both loved them. I made " Southern-style Cornbread--Low Phosphorus" to go with it - the cabbage rolls were moist and flavorful - thank you - we will be making them again.
