Golumpki - Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

This is a version you make in the slow cooker. They don't look pretty, but they are yummy! Many cultures have their version of these. I call them by the Polish version to stay true to my fiance's heritage. This particular recipe actually calls them Swedish and the preparation uses browned meat instead of raw. I've done both and used this version today to save myself some cooking time.

Golumpki - Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Golumpki - Stuffed Cabbage Rolls


12 large cabbage leaves
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
1 cup cooked rice
8-oz. can tomato sauce
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce


Immerse cabbage leaves in boiling water for about 3 minutes or until limp. Drain.

Combine egg, milk, onions, salt, pepper, beef and rice. Place about 1/4 cup mixture into the center of each leaf. Fold in the sides and roll ends over the meat. Place in slow cooker.

Combine tomato sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over the cabbage rolls.

*If you like more sauce I would recommend doubling the sauce, which is what I did this time and it turned out great.

Cover. Cook on low 6-8 hours.

Serves 6.

I really want a slow cooker but I'm not even sure they sell them here. :( Anyway, it looks really good. :feedme: I've always wanted to try stuffed cabbage rolls and it doesn't seem expensive to make, which is what I'm looking for.

I bet those are really good Karmasabitch!! Truly authentic! My fiance's Mom makes them more traditionally and serves them on special occasions. I know my fiance loves them, so I use this more time efficient recipe, so we can have them more often. They have similar flavor, but take less prep especially since they are going in a slow cooker.

I love my slow cooker too! Sometimes two of my meals a week come from here especially since I'm home more now. I'm making shredded pork - Mexican style later this week in the slow cooker as well.
