Pan-fry pork sausage until crumbled and slightly brown. Remove from
skillet; drain excess drippings reserving about 1 tablespoon. Saute chopped
cabbage and onion in reserved drippings until crisp-tender; combine with
cooked sausage, pears, bulgar or brown rice, parsley, lemon juice, salt and
cloves; mix well. Divide mixture among cabbage leaves; roll up and place
seam-side down in 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Heat 1-1/2 cups chicken
broth; pour over cabbage rolls. Cover with foil and bake at 350° F 40 to 50
minutes or until cabbage is fork tender. Remove cabbage rolls from baking
dish and keep warm. Measure liquid to equal 1 cup. Use in place of chicken
broth in Sauerbraten Sauce.

Always be sure to use ripe pears.
