Crock Pot Cabbage Rolls
By Appalachia's Homestead


Ingredients:
  • 2 medium Cabbage heads
  • 2 cans Sauerkraut (14 oz)
  • 1 lb. Ground beef 
  • 1 lb. mild Sausage
  • 3-4 strips Bacon (uncooked & cut into small bits)
  • 1/2 cup Uncooked rice (not quick cook)
  • 1 can Tomato paste (6 oz)
  • 1 can Tomato sauce (15 oz)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Garlic powder
  • Pinch of Cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of Turmeric

Directions:

-Wash and core cabbage heads. 

-Carefully blanch each head in boiling water till leaves begin  to turn tender. Remove whole cabbage and let slightly cool. Tenderly peel away each leaf.
                                                                                 

-Separate cans of sauerkraut from all ingredients as they are *not* used in the meat mix.



    -Combine all other ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well.
                                                                                         





-Remove thick bottom vein portion of each cabbage leaf and fill with approximately 2 tablespoons or so of meat mixture. 

                                                                                       





 -Carefully roll each leaf. Each will roll differently as no two leaves are the exact same.
                                                                                    



  -Spray Crock Pot lightly with cooking spray (I prefer Organic Coconut Oil spray).     



  - Layer bottom of Crock Pot with one can of sauerkraut.  

  -Carefully place each cabbage roll seem side down into Crock Pot and layer them. 

   -Cover entire top of cabbage rolls with 2nd can of sauerkraut.

                                                                                        
                                                                                     
  -Place lid and cook on high for approximately 4 hours.

  -Recipe makes 25-30 cabbage rolls.

 Enjoy!
