Default Re: Crock Pot Cabbage Rolls

May I add a tip here?? Ok......!

Instead of cooking the cabbage leaves, put the head of cabbabge in the freezer for a day. Yep.....you read that right!! Core the stalk out of the cabbage and wrap in up in plastic wrap. Leave it in the freezer overnight and then thaw it in a bowl of water. The leaves will peel off whole and limp and roll up into the nicest cabbage rolls you ever saw!! I do mine in the crock pot also, and the cook up nice and tender! Try it.....you'll never mess with boiling them again!

I also make my cabbage rolls extra low carb by substituting grated cauliflower for the rice (you'll never taste the difference) and reducing the sugar (or substituting with splenda.....I dont' like my sauce sweet anyway).
