Slow Cooker Cabbage Rolls


  • 1 Savoy cabbage

  • 1 lb ground beef

  • 1 cup rice, (cooked)

  • 1 onion, diced

  • salt

  • pepperoni

  • 1 egg

  • 1 large can tomato sauce, plain

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


  • Combine ground beef, rice, onions, egg, salt and pepper. Set aside.

  • Pull Savoy Cabbage off one leaf at a time. Place loosely into microwave and cook on high for 1-2 minutes until limp but not falling apart.

  • Lay leaf on a flat surface. Put a spoonful of mixture at large end of of leaf and fold over, folding sides in as you roll to the end of the leaf. *Note: cut out large core if neccessary.

  • Place cabbage rolls into slow cooker one at a time covering the bottom first, then laying rolls overtop of layer in between to make removing from slow cooker easier. Continue until cabbage leaves are all filled.

  • In a bowl, combine tomato sauce, Worcestershire, brown sugar, water and mix. Pour over top of cabbage rolls.

  • Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Serve with crusty bread.

I have been making this recipe for years. It takes a little time to prepare but it is worth every minute. The savoy cabbage makes rolling a snap!
