Creamy Cabbage-Pork Stew Recipe

Savory flavors blend beautifully in this hearty recipe from field editor Ruth Ann Stelfox of Raymond, Alberta. “This stew can also be made in a slow cooker,“ she notes. “In a pinch, I use a ring of garlic bologna cut into chunks in place of the pork shoulder.“
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 6 hours YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 pound pork stew meat
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3 cups coarsely chopped cabbage
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 1-1/2 cups apple juice
  • 2 medium red potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk


  • 1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown pork in oil on all sides; drain. Place in a 3-qt. slow cooker; stir in the cabbage, soup, apple juice, potatoes, carrots, caraway and pepper.
  • 2. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until pork and vegetables are tender. Stir in milk; heat through. Yield: 6 servings.

"I made this for St. Patrick's Day, the whole family loved it. The ingredient amounts listed would never feed 6 adults. I used my 5 qt. crockpot and used 1 3/4 lbs. pork, plus more potatoes, carrots & cabbage. I did not increase the soup, apple juice or milk and there was plenty of sauce. We do not like caraway so I substituted a tsp. or so of thyme."

"My husband gave this 2 happy faces = 5*'s. Very easy and quick to put together in the crockpot. I thought it would be a very good dish for St. Patrick's Day instead of the traditional corned beef and cabbage."
