Ok, I am going to get to the Slow Cooker Cabbage Casserole

By using spaghetti sauce in place of tomatoes and tomato sauce, you save a little money and also cut out the need for additional seasonings, but you can add those in as well if you like.
This recipe is versatile and dependable.
Ingredients To Cabbage Casserole in the Slow Cooker You’ll Need:
- Spaghetti Sauce
- Cooked Ground Beef*
- Cabbage (well it is Cabbage casserole after all) 🙂
Use whatever spaghetti sauce you grab first.
Should I Use Fresh or Dehydrated Ground Beef?
You can use fresh ground beef that you’ve cooked or even dehydrated ground beef if you have that (here is my video on how to do it). If you use fresh, cook it first. If you use freeze dried, just add some water to it and let it sit for 3-5 minutes before using. If you are using dehydrated, cover it with hot water and let it sit for ten minutes (or so).
Taste Testing Your Casserole’s Sauce Is Always a Good Thing
How well seasoned your casserole is going to be depends on how well seasoned your sauce is. Once it is done cooking you can have a taste and then add more herbs or spices if you like. Or add them at the start if you prefer.
How To Make Cabbage Casserole In The Crock Pot
Chop your cabbage and your onion.
Mama called while I was doing this and said “Now if yore chopping onions, make them real small, not like you normally do…”
I like big slices of onion in my dishes because I like onion, so I slice mine big. Mama likes the taste of onion but not the experience of biting into a whole hunk of it, so she chops hers really tiny. Mama, I tried. This is as small as I can get and I made it that small just because of you.
I had initially pictured large slices but at __ years of age, I still mind my Mama.
Put a layer of chopped cabbage in the bottom of your slow cooker.
Top with ground beef and onions.
Add 1/2 of the spaghetti sauce.
Repeat that one more time.
Gently pour 1 cup water around the edges.
Cook on low, 7-8 hours or high 3-4.
Stir well before serving.
Now you can eat this on it’s own or serve it over rice or while riding a donkey backwards and playing a banjo. Totally up to you.
- 1/2 head cabbage chopped
- 1 lb ground beef cooked and drained
- 1 onion chopped
- 1 jar spaghetti sauce of your choice
- 1 cup water
- Additional seasonings: salt pepper, herbs, garlic powder, etc to taste (I didn’t add any additional)
In 4-6 quart slow cooker, place 1/2 of cabbage. Top with 1/2 of onions, 1/2 of beef, and 1/2 of spaghetti sauce. Repeat once more. Pour water around the sides into the slow cooker (To keep from disturbing the spaghetti sauce)
Cover and place on low 7-8 hours or high, 3-4 hours.
Serve on it’s own or over rice.
NOTE: How well seasoned your casserole is going to be depends on how well seasoned your sauce is. Once it is done cooking you can have a taste and then add more herbs or spices if you like. Or add them at the start if you prefer.
