I gave 5 stars for the meatballs , everyone loves them!! I've made them several times and didn't bother with the sauce, we ate them as soon a they were cooked!

Loved this recipe! I took advice from 2 other reviews - after preparing it (including boiling the beans) I put it on a sheet pan and roasted it for 20 min @ 400, then sprinkled grated cheese at the end. I actually forgot the garlic and vinegar but it was good anyway! Had some leftovers in a bean sandwich the next day - yum! will make it again""

I make this stoup frequently. I usually just use ground beef and let it simmer longer to cook the cabbage more. Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
