Crockpot Sausage and Cabbage (Gluten Free)

One way I keep my budget low is to buy what’s cheapest when it’s cheapest. I use the EWG’s Dirty Dozen/Clean 15 list priotize my organic purchases. I like cabbage a lot, and I like it even better since it’s on the Clean 15 List and often very cheap! I’ve found that cabbage hits rock bottom prices around St. Patty’s Day for some reason. Watch for cheap cabbage in March!

One of my favorite recipes for cabbage involves my slow cooker! This recipe is quick to throw together and delightful to eat.Sausage & Cabbage for the slow cooker - gluten free

I’ve been making this recipe for Sausage and Cabbage in my crockpot for a long time. I found the original recipe on southernfood.about.com but I can’t find the original source anymore – and I’ve since adapted the recipe to fit my family’s needs.  It’s easy and delicious and perfect for busy days because you can just throw the ingredients in the slow cooker and forget about them. It’s also naturally gluten-free and so just about anyone cat eat it!

Crockpot Sausage and Cabbage

Crockpot Sausage and Cabbage

Ingredients

  • 1 small head cabbage, coarsely shredded
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds kielbasa
  • 1 cup apple juice }{or water works just as well}
  • 1 TBS dijon mustard
  • 1 TBS cider vinegar
  • 2-3 large potatoes, diced
  • 2-3 large carrots, diced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Layer the cabbage, onion, potatoes, carrots, and sausage in a 5 or 6 qt. crockpot.
  2. Whisk together the juice, mustard, vinegar and pour over crockpot ingredients.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. (My crockpot cooks it faster than that - it's usually ready after only 4-6 hours instead so prepare to adjust the time depending on your crock pot.)
  4. I've also cooked it on high for 1 hour and then on low for 3-4 hours when I forget to get it ready earlier in the day.

I love this recipe because it is quick, frugal and delicious. My crockpot is my work horse! If you’re looking for a good slow cooker, I highly recommend this  Hamilton Beach 6 qt version. I’ve had this slow cooker for a number of years now and have been very, very happy with it.

    We'll make eggrolls and freeze them! I buy the wrappers and then add cabbage, carrots, onion, sausage, soy sauce and whatever else I have. (Freeze on cookie sheet and then bag them up.) They are best fried, but we usually bake them. I'll have to try the crockpot recipe — looks yummy!

    Eggrolls! What a great idea! Do you just dump or do you have a recipe you start from, Sara? I've never made eggrolls before. Might have to give it a shot. Thanks!

  3. Sara says

    Sometimes I follow the recipe on the back of the eggroll wrapper package — and sometimes I just dump :) Also…mu shu pork is delish!

    I'm not a fan of cabbage, and neither is my hubby… but that crock pot recipe in interesting. I am saving the recipe and maybe I'll try it next year. How much of it ends up being cabbage once it's cooked?

  5. Michelle says

    The cabbage cooks way down. You can add more of the other ingredients to have a better combo, if you want. I think it's worth trying at least once! I usually go heavier on the cabbage than then sausage, but my family would prefer it the other way around.

    Do you eat this as a single dish? What (if anything) do you eat with it? Is it soupy? Looks so delicious.

  7. Michelle says

    Anon- it is pretty good! I generally serve a salad and bread with it. Depending on how many (if any) potatoesI add to the mix, I might also make fried potatoes. I think any type of potatoes go very nicely with it. I sometimes just take the easy way out and cook them in the crockpot with everything else. It's not too soupy, but the cabbage does cook down and become a little watery.
