Crock Pot Cabbage Rolls

Jo Zimny


It's Chanukah and I made Cabbage Rolls. I added a few different ingredients then this recipe called for just to try something different. I added ground turkey and chicken and apple sausage instead of the lamb or beef. These are very tasty and quite mild. I used brown rice in mine as well. I also put the pieces of cabbage that I didn't use in the bottom of the crock pot. I removed the core of the cabbage and boiled it for about 15 minutes instead of removing the leaves before cooking them. I find this works better for me. I also doubled the recipe, I know we will make quick work of them.
