Hearty Cabbage Patch Stew Recipe

Publisher Photo
Our family loves this hearty stew. I like to serve steaming helping in old-fashioned soup plates with thick crusty slices of homemade bread. To get the 11 cups of chopped cabbage for this stew, you'll need to start with a small head of cabbage, about 2 to 2-1/2 pounds. Or for quicker prep, substitute coleslaw mix from the produce department.—Karen Ann Bland, Gove, Kansas

MY REVIEW

This is super good and easy! Make sure you have a large slow cooker because there is a whole lot of cabbage in here that does shrink down some but when you first start cooking it, it takes up a lot of room. This has a tangy, sort of sour taste (in a good way). Lots of flavor. Added sour cream to my portion when I ate it but my boyfriend did not and he still liked it. Lots of protein without a lot of fat. The cabbage takes place of the noodles for less calories and cabbage is super good for you. I froze some of this and when I reheated those portions it was just as good. Recommend this recipe- thank you!

I hate cabbage... BUT THIS RECIPE IS AWESOME!. I'm a diabetic (type 1) and my husband brought this recipe home as a suggestion from a co-worker. I looked at the title and the ingredients and thought, "Eww... I'm NEVER gonna make this." But I love crock-pot recipes and this was so unusual that I figured I'd give it a try. I made it over and over again for 2 months straight. Even my 4-year-old requested it. Absolutely awesome with cheddar and sour cream on top. Tastes just as good re-heated in the microwave as it does fresh from the pot!

This was an excellent dish which my whole family enjoyed. I used 1 teaspoon of chili powder and it was still spicy.
