Stuffed Cabbage Casserole for the crock pot

This was a tasty and easy way to have stuffed cabbage (only it is unstuffed!) . I found this in Best of Country SLow Cooker recipes. (for a non-meat vegetarian stuffed cabbage that I may try in the crockpot at some point- go here http://nannykimsrecipes.blogspot.com/2010/10/vegetarian-stuffed-cabbage.html) but for the meat one in the crock see below.

1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey
1 onion , chopped
4 cups chopped cabbage (I used the fresh slaw cabbage--alread sliced up)
1 medium green pepper, chopped (I prefer more of this--tastes like stuffed peppers with more)
1 cup instant rice (I used the instant brown rice)
1 cup water
1 can (6 oz) of tomato paste
1 can (14 -1/2 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons of vinegar (I used the apple cider kind)
1-2 tab. sugar (I just used 1--for more tartness)
1 tab. Worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 tsp salt (I use much less--more like 1/2 tsp)
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder

In a skillet, cook the meat and onions until no longer pink, drain. Place it in the slow cooker; add the cabbage, green pepper and uncooked instant rice. In a bowl, combine the water and tomato paste. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Pour over the meat mixture and MIX WELL. Cover and cook on low 4-5 hours or until rice and vegetables are tender. Makes 4-6 servings.

another good vegetable casserole with cabbage, rice, black-eyed peas is here: http://nannykimsrecipes.blogspot.com/2012/10/baked-cabbage-rice-black-eyed-pea.html

Hi there, found your blog this Sunday morning and saw the pic of the kitty. We have a kitty that look almost just like yours and ours is named Emma. We have a few more kitties and a couple of them like it when we cook. Thanks for sharing these recipes and I hope that many find your site!

Willowlady, I love these tuxedo cats ;-) . We have a lot of them on our street, although ours came from 5 miles away. Our cat is now 15!

I am excited about trying this recipe. My husband is very strict with low carb, so I will need to figure out what to use instead of the rice.

Nana54--hmmm, that would be a hard one. Its funny because we follow a pretty high carb diet, but it keeps us in our range of weight.

Would you use regular rice?

nannykim said...

I have never tried the regular rice--my assumption is that it would need more liquid for cooking regular rice. You might look at other crock pot recipes online where they use regular rice instead of instant rice to see how much liquid they use.
