With cabbage being on sale this week due to Saint Patrick's Day, what are some alternative cabbage dishes for the crock pot that your family enjoys that can employ cabbage?

Here are some cabbage rolls recipes:

Hungarian Crockpot Cabbage Rolls Recipe

ef/r/bl12c2.htm

I omit the pork, use beef instead, and simply wilt the leaves by running hot water from the tap over them.

Cabbage rolls are great for rural North America as many farmers raise hogs for their own use, and have lots of ground pork in the freezer, and have cabbage rolls in their gardens.

I tried Crockpot Coconut Beef Curry crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/08/cocount-b
eef-crockpot-recipe.html
this week. I didn't have any chili paste so I used red pepper flakes and actually ended up adding too many even for my DH, who has to add hot sauce to just about everything. It was good and DH declared that he would definitely like me to make it again with less spice. I used regular coconut milk because the reviews said there wasn't that much coconut flavor. I would say there still wasn't a lot of coconut flavor and when I make it next time I will probably just use light coconut milk and top the servings with some flaked coconut to highlight that flavor.

So rating it I would give it 4 stars.

Followup:

I made this recipe with Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, to see if I could, and I give it 5 stars. I added some extra apples because they were past their prime and needed to be used up, and I added raisins because that's how I like it when I make it on the stove top. I forgot to spray the interior of the crockpot and it burned and stuck on, but not bad, and does not taste burnt. I can tell by looking it's going to soak right off.

APPLE CINNAMON CROCKPOT OATMEAL
*2 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (not steel cut, not Irish)
*1 chopped apple
* tsp. cinnamon
*4 cups of water

Although this was really super good, if you like your oatmeal to have whole intact flakes you could cook it much shorter time, just experiment. I will make this again and again. I'd heard you needed the special oatmeal, but I just used regular.

The original recipe said 4 servings; I divided it evenly into 4 Correlle cereal bowls and then spooned the contents of one bowl into measuring cups, which was 1 1/2 cups. So the portions are generous. Maybe 1 1/4 heaping cups without my additional fruit? I made this in a 4 quart crockpot, and it was the perfect size.

I've now batchcooked 3 additional homemade breakfasts for myself. The others will go in the fridge when cool.

I tried a new one last night! McCormick makes Slow Cooker spice packages (they are in the aisle w/ gravies, taco seasoning packets, etc.). Last night I tried the Italian Herb Chicken packet in my crockpot with a few tweaks, and it was SO SO delicious & easy! This is my verison of using this packet:

1 bag of boneless skinless frozen chicken breast
2 cans (14.5 oz) Italian Stewed tomatoes
1 can (6 oz) of tomato paste
1 packet of McCormick Italian Herb Chicken Slow Cooker spice
1 can of sliced black olives
1 clove minced garlic
white wine (for marinade)
shredded mozzerella cheese

Pour white wine into bag of frozen chicken to marinade while thawing. (I did this the night before when I pulled the chicken from my freezer. I left it in the sink to thaw & poured it in the bag the chicken came in rather than dirtying a dish).

When the chicken has thawed, put the tomatoes & paste in the crockpot and stir in the seasoning packet and minced garlic. Mix well. Pour liquid out of chicken bag & place chicken in crockpot. Make sure its covered well. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4. In the last 15-30 minutes, stir in black olives, and sprinkle mozzerella cheese on top of chicken to melt.

Delish!!

On the team page you'll notice 5 team goals. One of the 5 is to try a new crock pot recipe, and post about it.

The following is something I've been wanting to try for awhile now, I will let you know how it turns out, and post it on the "Other" Recipe Thread if it's good.

APPLE CINNAMON CROCKPOT OATMEAL
*2 cups of oats - I'm using Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (not steel cut, not Irish) and will let you know what happens.
*1 chopped apple
* tsp. cinnamon
*4 cups of water

Combine in your slow cooker. Cook on low overnight and sweeten to taste. Serves 4.
170 calories, 2 g fat

I'll measure how much this makes when it's done, before I eat any, to quantify how much each of the 4 servings contain.
