* If you are here from Pinterest, Welcome! I have been asked for the recipe,
it is at the bottom in the comment section.
There are a ton of crockpot recipes flying around the internet these days & if you’re partial to Pinterest, I’m sure you’ve noticed. I also have noticed that a bunch of them are full of package mixes and lots of canned soup bases. I’m not sure about you, but I am trying to slowly get away from all of these processed things.
Cabbage rolls are like my chicken pot pie I make… it’s a big comfort food for me.
Cabbage rolls drum up a whole lot of nostalgia in my mind and heart. Every year for Thanksgiving, my cousin would come from Alaska for a mini-reunion, this was her chance to get grandma’s cabbage rolls.
As you can imagine we liked to go and do tons of stuff while she was visiting, which brings me to my point. Did you know that you can slow-cook cabbage rolls? I didn’t realize thing till my grandma told me a couple years back. I’m so happy to have learnt so much from her!
I’m sure you’ve already guessed that there is some prep-work before hand, but it is so worth it. Just pile those yummy little packages of stuffed cabbage in the crock with some kraut and tomato juice, turn on, and go. Go do some “running” as my grandma would call it. For you young pups out there, that’s code for “shopping, errands, etc.”
The best thing about this idea? When you come home, it’s all done. It’s a meal in itself, no post-prep on this meal. We like to eat them with crescent rolls and cottage cheese. Cabbage rolls are just one of those meals that warms your belly and your soul in the middle of winter.
