I don’t know how popular cabbage rolls are but I’m looking for some ideas. My grandmother used to make them for special occasions, and I’d like to give it a try.

I just bought the cabbage and I have a pretty well stocked pantry and fridge.

Questions:

Filling – do you use beef, or a mix? I want to put rice in the filling (because my Grandmother did) but aside from that, what other things would keep the filling moist and add some awesome flavor?

Sauce – My grandmother actually never served it with a sauce (at least I don’t recall one) but I think I would really like one. The ones I’ve seen appear to be tomato based, so what is a really good recipe?

There are a few recipes out there (Googled), but they vary greatly. I didn't find any on this site.

If you’ve got some recipes and techniques on how you do them, I’d love to hear them. Thanks!
