Recipe: Crock Pot Unstuffed Cabbage

1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
4 c chopped cabbage
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 c uncooked instant rice
1 c water
6 oz tomato paste
15 oz diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 c ketchup
2 T vinegar
1 T sugar
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 t salt
1/2 t black pepper
1/4 t garlic powder

Brown beef and onion in skillet; drain well.  Combine all ingredient in Crock Pot.  Cover; cook on low 4-5 hours.

Notes: I abhor instant rice, so I used regular long grain rice, and cooked it about halfway and let it cook the rest of the way in the CP.  I cooked this on low for four hours, and the cabbage was ever so slighty undercooked.  Next time I will either parboil it first or cook it more on the five hour side.

Otherwise, this was absolutely AWESOME.  I really loved it, and I intend to make it again.  YUM!  All the goodness of stuffed cabbage without the time, mess, and effort!

  1. I'll have to try this. How long was the regular rice in the crock pot?
