Slow Cooker Sausage and Cabbage
I love this crock pot recipe because of the ingredients and the directions.
The ingredients are basic, you might have everything in your kitchen already! The stars of the show are Sweet Italian Sausage, cabbage, potatoes, carrots and a onion. Close your eyes. Imagine the smell of your kitchen while this cooks. It’s going to smell SO GOOD!
Whenever I make this cabbage recipe, my husband can smell it in our hallway as soon as he steps off the elevator. He gets a little strut in his step because he knows it’s going to be a good dinner.
Easy Cabbage Recipe
This crock pot meal is hands down one of my favorite cabbage recipes! Cabbage in my opinion is a underrated vegetable, I try to cook with it a few times a month due to it’s value, both in price and in nutrition.
This recipe calls for 2 pounds of Sweet Italian Sausage. I buy the links and then cut them up into 2 inch pieces.
Alternatively, you could use ground sausage if you’d like to, but the dinner will be more of a casserole when finished, since you won’t have bite sized pieces of sausage.
Add all your cabbage to the slow cooker on the bottom.
Next, add in your diced potatoes.
Now add in your diced carrots. Carrots are currently my daughter’s favorite – can you believe that?
Add in your onion…. which is always one of my husband’s favorite ingredients!
One more layer… add in your Sweet Italian Sausage.
You’ll want to add chicken broth, salt, pepper, brown sugar and garlic into the slow cooker. This is going to make everything taste real good.
I sprinkle this on top so it covers all the pieces of sausage and the vegetables.
Easy Crockpot Recipe
Now close the lid and cook on LOW for 6 hours. You don’t need to do anything else!
No seriously, you don’t need to do anything. Just let it cook, the crock pot does all the work! Depending on how you want to serve this meal, you can make egg noodles or rice when there is a few minutes remaining. Sometimes we will make egg noodles, but sometimes we will just eat this with nothing else – it’s really up to you!
6 hours later…. YUM YUM YUM! Dinner is served!
Don’t you love that you have a full meal of meat and vegetables ready to serve to your family and it was so easy to make? This is the perfect meal for busy Fall weeknights, or even a Sunday when you have a million other things to do!
When I plate this meal, I always like to serve the vegetables on bottom and then put the sausage pieces on top. If you’re going to additonally make egg noodles, you can place them on the very bottom.
I love that each bite of the sausage has a taste of the brown sugar and garlic – it’s the perfect combo!
I also love that the vegetables are perfectly cooked. Your fork will easily slide through them, without them being too mushy or too hard. They’re perfect!
Ok, I’ll stop talking now and let you make this recipe! Enjoy this Slow Cooker Sausage and Cabbage!
