Cabbage Rolls in the Crock Pot


  • 1 medium to large head of cabbage, (leaves loosened by placing in boiling water until pliable)
  • 1/2 - 1 lb. ground beef, browned
  • Ad

  • 1 - 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup uncooked, long-cooking rice
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 large can sauerkraut
  • 1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 (30 oz.) can tomato sauce


Mix chili powder and 1/2 tsp. salt into tomato sauce and set aside.

Mix the beef, onion, garlic, egg, rice, remaining salt, pepper, and place about 1/4 cup of this mixture into the middle of cabbage leaves and roll into several bundles.

Layer in crock pot in this order: 1/3 sauerkraut, 1/3 sauce mixture, 1/2 cabbage bundles, repeat, ending with the last layer of sauerkraut and sauce on top.

I cook about an hour on high, to bring it to a simmer, and then about 4 to six on low, until the rice is done but not too mushy. This freezes very well. A nice accompaniment is mashed potatoes and tomato gravy and fresh or frozen corn.

What is the chili pepper you specify in this recipe? Red pepper flakes or? Want to make it for a small Christmas party but need to know this. Thanks!

Someone had asked about "chili pepper" but there is no chili pepper in recipe. It says Chili Powder (which is a spice found in spice aisle. Sometimes even stores like Rite-Aid or other places where spices are sold have it, it's common). I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I think I will because it looks pretty tasty!
