“Most accomplished cooks have their own cabbage roll filling recipe -- this is just a recipe for an especially good sauce to complement your own cabbage rolls. It is tomato-based and the dill really comes through. My wonderful mother-in-law gave me the original recipe and I tweaked it with the wine. It will easily provide enough sauce for 12-15 big cabbage rolls. I love this sauce!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sautee the onion in the olive oil in a thick-bottomed pot until tender. Do not drain.
  2. Add all other ingredients, cover the pot, and simmer for an hour or so, stirring frequently.
  3. NOTE: Sometimes, I use 2 large chopped onions instead of just one.
