Peppie and Pop pay loving tribute to Jenna’s beloved Grammy with this slow-cookin’ version of her much-adored recipe.

Used 6-quart slow cooker

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound Ground Beef
  • 1/3 to 1/2 Pound Hot Breakfast Sausage
  • 1 Cup Long Grain Rice
  • 5 to 6 Cloves Garlic, minced or chopped, divided
  • 1 Head Green Cabbage
  • 2 small Cans Tomato Sauce
  • 5 Cans Water
  • 3 Tablespoons Chili Blend Seasoning (not chili powder)

Directions

  1. Step One

    In a bowl, mix ground beef, sausage, rice, and 2 or 3 minced or chopped garlic cloves.

  2. Step Two

    Cut core out of cabbage and put cabbage in hot water. Pull leaves off as they get a little tender.

  3. Step Three

    Place meat mixture in leaves; roll up and put a toothpick in each roll. In a separate bowl, mix tomato sauce with 5 cans water, chili blend, and 2 to 3 cloves of minced or chopped garlic. Mix well.

  4. Step Four

    Put cabbage rolls in slow cooker, placing the least tender ones on the bottom.

  5. Step Five

    Then pour tomato sauce mixture over rolls, covering all. Cook on HIGH for approximately 6 hours.

    Since I couldn’t peel the cabbage leaves apart without shredding them I turned this into a lasagna style dish instead. I layered the cabbage leaves then the meat and rice and added some crushed tomatoes. It came out soooo yummy!! Even my son loved it and he HATES cabbage. I cooked it on low for 9 hours so it would be ready after football practice!

    I work nights so my crock pot is my best friend and I am looking for new recipes. Can I place all of these ingredients together in a freezer bag/container and then just place them in the crockpot when I am ready to cook them? I find that is the most convenient way for me to use my slow cooker and still get enough sleep.

    Well, I’m glad to know that you were able to make it tasty for you, and you’re other recipes turned out better. Thanks for posting :))

    Ok. I have salvaged the tamales. I thickened up the sauce, put the tamales in a Pyrex dish, added some corn, black beans, chopped onions, and shredded cheese. I poured the thickened sauce over everything and baked until it was hot. Served with sour cream. Pretty tasty! Seriously, my taste buds must have been tainted the first time. All the other recipes I have tried from this site have been excellent.

    Sorry, Libby :( Yeah, we don’t cook the meat first…this was a recipe I grew up eating. Sorry it wasn’t what you liked, girl. Did you watch the video for tips?

  7. Libby R.

    Omg! This was awful. I followed the recipe to the letter. Are the meat and sausage to be cooked first? I will not cook this again.
