Crock – Pot Cabbage Rolls

Cabbage rolls are simple and delicious and great comfort food. They take a little bit of preparation to put together, but after that, just stick it in a crock pot and walk away.


cabbage rolls



  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 1 cup of cooked rice
  • 1/2 pound of sausage, or 2-3 sausages with the casing taken off
  • 1 tsp. fennel
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes


  1. Heat a large pot of water to boil on the stove, and set out a bowl of ice water. Take the outside few leaves off the cabbage, and then de-core it by carefully sticking a small knife in the bottom and going in a circle. Take a cone of the cabbage stem out of the bottom.
  2. Once the water is boiling, place the cabbage in the water for 4-5 minutes, in order to loosen and soften the leaves. Then, carefully place the cabbage in the ice water.
  3. Once the cabbage is cool enough to touch, peel some leaves off and set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the rice, sausage, fennel and salt and pepper. Then, take about 2 teaspoons of the mixture and place on a cabbage leaf, curved side up. Roll the cabbage roll tightly, and set aside. Repeat for all of the mixture and cabbage.
  5. If needed, repeat the boiling/ice water process once you get to the middle of the cabbage.
  6. Layer the tomatoes and rolls in a crock-pot, and set it to low.
  7. Cook for 5-6 hours and enjoy!
