How to make

Grandma’s Hungarian Stuffed Cabbage, Slow Cooker Variation


Prep: 25 mins  Cook: 7 hrs 14 mins  Additional: 5 mins

Total: 7 hrs 44 mins  Servings:Yield: 8 servings





  • 1 head cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ¾ cup uncooked white rice, rinsed
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 (32 ounces) can tomato juice



Step 1 Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook cabbage in boiling water until outer leaves pull away easily from the head, 3 to 5 minutes. Separate leaves and let cool. Reserve 1 1/2 cup cooking water.

Step 2 Heat oil in a large skillet. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in wet rice; cook and stir until moisture evaporates, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and let cool, about 5 minutes.

Step 3 Mix beef, sausage, and egg together in a large bowl. Stir in cooled rice mixture.

Step 4 Place a golfball-sized amount of the beef mixture on the ribbed end of a cabbage leaf; roll up, tucking in the sides. Repeat with remaining beef mixture and cabbage leaves.

Step 5 Place rolls seam-side down in a slow cooker. Cover with tomato juice. Pour reserved cooking water on top.

Step 6 Cook on High for 30 minutes. Switch to Low and cook for 6 1/2 hours.


Cook’s Notes: Substitute vegetable juice for the tomato juice if desired. If cooking on the stove, boil in a large pot for 30 to 45 minutes.
