Nothing easier than slow cooker stuffed cabbage

This crock-pot stuffed cabbage is a snap, too, because it uses shredded cabbage – coleslaw mix from the store – and bottled marinara.

What recipe could be easier than that when you’re too busy to cook?

Just get this ready in the morning and you’ll have a yummy slow cooker stuffed cabbage casserole waiting for you when you get home.

For easy crock-pot cleanup, use slow cooker liners. They’re a lifesaver because they make cleanup a breeze.

Now that I use them, I no longer have to soak my slow cooker overnight and scrub it using Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser and a scouring pad.

Fix it and forget it crock pot stuffed cabbage

I love a “fix it and forget it” recipe. And what is better than a meal that basically cooks itself in your slow cooker after a long busy day?

This Cabbage Roll Casserole has all the components of stuffed cabbage rolls combined into an effortless casserole.

That's meaty sirloin, brown rice and marinara, plus the cabbage adds moist sweetness without overpowering the hearty meal.

Keep your recipe trim and terrific by using sirloin since meat ending in “loin” or “round” are some of the leanest cuts of meat, which helps cut down on saturated fat.
