This Cabbage Rolls, Crockpot recipe stems from my ethnic background/heritage (a blend of Ukrainian, German and Romanian). There are a few recipes my mom really excelled at when I was a wee thing and they included anything surrounding our heritage (Holubtsi-cabbage rolls), Borscht, Sauerkraut-fermenting somewhere in the house and Pierogi’s). There were all kinds of German baking and pastries that came our way regularly as well.
Some of these recipes continue to be favourites. Cabbage rolls are one of them. Simple to prepare and delicious to eat it’s comfort food when it’s a good childhood food memory. Even easier is when they are done in your crockpot. My mother would make them with tomato juice and bake them in an oven. I prefer tomato sauce and allowing them to simmer all day in my slow cooker.
The seasonings are fairly simple. So if you’ve never rolled a cabbage roll before – give it a try….you will find it easier than you think.
