In the Slow Cooker | Unstuffed Cabbage (Sweet & Sour Cabbage and Meatballs)

Stuffed cabbage is delicious and it’s the quintessential Shabbat food.

The only thing I don’t love about it is that it takes for.ever to make. Clean, steam, trim, saute, stuff, cook. Frankly, it’s way too labor-intensive for me.

That’s why I am so excited about this “Unstuffed Cabbage” recipeIt was delicious, comforting and a real crowd pleaser. Even better, it’s super duper easy to prepare.

Just layer the ingredients in your slow cooker, turn it on low, and go about your day.

  1. I would love to try this. I really like stuffed cabbage; alas, no one else in my family does. I may try this anyway and see if they can expand their culinary horizons. The idea of having dinner all ready is quite appealing!

  2. sounds yum! I have a napa cabbage from my crop-share I was not sure what to use it for.

  3. This looks great and I can make it for Pesach….do you know if it freezes well?? Also what size crock pot do you use?? Thanks

    • I haven’t tried freezing it, but it do you mean to do it as a “dump” recipe – or to cook it thoroughly and then freeze. We use our biggest crock, which is – I think – 6 quart.

      Hope that helps!

  4. I followed your recipe – DELISH! Easy to make, and my kids devoured it. Thanks!

    I have had this sitting in a pile of recipes for a yr. I, made this evening and it was delisish and so much easier to make. I added raisins. I also have a great stuffed cabbage recipe I have made for years from an old Haddasah cookbook. I might try this in a crockpot . I will let you know. Thanks

  7. Do you think this would work with the pre-shredded cabbage? I have a few bags that need using!

    Also, think the recipe can be halved?

    • Mara Strom says:

      You can definitely halve the recipe, Shelley. I might try adding the bagged cabbage half-way thru the recipe, so it doesn’t cook down too much.

  8. How do you define “large” can of tomatoes? 14.5 oz or the (really?) big 28 oz ones?

    Also, what do you serve this with?

    Thanks!

  9. Do you think this recipe can withstand >8 hours in the crockpot, like 16+ hours, for the purposed of making for a regular Shabbat?
