Grocery Ingredients:

  • 1 head green cabbage (1-2 lbs.)
  • 2 slices of bacon (chopped) or bacon bits
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 large egg (beaten)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion (1/2 onion)
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 2 tbs. brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce


  1. Place the head of cabbage in the microwave for 14 minutes. Once the cabbage is cool enough to handle, peel off the leaves.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the beef, pork, beaten egg, milk, onion, rice, salt, and pepper; mix well.
  3. Place 1/4 cup of meat mixture onto a cabbage leaf. Roll up the cabbage burrito-style and put it into the slow cooker seam side down. Repeat with the remaining leaves and meat mixture.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the tomato sauce, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce.
  5. Pour the sauce over the cabbage rolls. Add bacon on top. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours, until the meat is cooked through. The filling should reach 160 degrees F.
  6. Enjoy!
