    Pretty good! I used 1 tbps sesame oil and 1 tbsp of spicy pepper oil to give this dish more flavor. It was a lot of work for a weeknight, but definitely worth it and a good recipe to add to the rotation.

    I made the receipe just like it said - the stuffing was good (not great) but the cabbage wrap was awful. I would have preferred to use lettuce like some of the reviewers did. It was just okay so not anything i would make again.

    Wrapped in romaine instead of cabbage, and topped with sriracha. Otherwise I followed the recipe - will definitely make this again. Easy, low cal dinner that tasted great.

    The filling for this was great my husband and I loved it! The only thing that was off was the cabbage wraps, my grocery store didn't have napa cabbage so I just went with green cabbage. It worked great for the filling, but was too tough for my liking for the wrap. I had made some rice so it wasn't a big deal. Next time I'll use lettuce or maybe a tortilla

    Savoy cabbage was tender and delicious. I substituted oyster sauce for the hoisin sauce, because of personal preferences. I also added zucchini and red pepper. Definitely a keeper.

    This is such a great recipe! The prep work was a little more than I look for in a weeknight meal, but if you buy shredded cabbage and pre-cut carrots that would help a lot, and the short cooking time makes up for the prep time. I did serve it in the cabbage wraps and liked it a lot, but my husband would have preferred it without. It is also family friendly. Note that I actually halved the oils to bring down the point value (for Weight Watchers) and it still tasted great.

    So good. We've been trying lots of Asian recipes lately and my boyfriend said this is his favorite. We decided to substitute lettuce for the cabbage wrap, but it fell apart. We ended up using tortillas. Next time I might be prepared cole slaw mix instead of messing with a whole head of cabbage. Definitely excited to try again.

    This recipe is a newfound household favorite! I can't believe that anyone's dish turned out bland! My roommate and I love it and think it's very tasty -- restaurant quality! The last time I made it, I added water chesnuts to the mix, which was a great crunchy addition. I also think it would be good with some peanuts. We prefer wrapping the filling in iceberg lettuce because the cabbage is a little bitter raw. It goes great with a side of brown rice, especially when you scramble in an egg to give that fried rice effect! I think it could easily be vegetarian if you omitted the pork and added more mushrooms.

    Decent recipe, but my family agreed, it was somewhat bland. The recipe involved a good bit of prep work with somewhat 'eh' results. I went with the two stars because I agree, it has potential... the pork was tender and the cabbage added a nice crunch. Maybe the addition of some chiles or ginger. I won't rush back to make it again, though.
