Cabbage Rolls

  3. Place cabbage leaves on work surface. Place 1/4 cup filling at the bottom of each cabbage leaf, dividing filling equally between cabbage leaves.
  4. Roll cabbage leaves, folding in bottom and sides to enclose the filling. Set filled leaves aside.
  5. Place half of sauce in bottom of a 4 quart slow cooker.
  6. Arrange filled cabbage leaves, seam side down, on top of the sauce, making as many layers as necessary. Spoon the remaining sauce over the cabbage rolls. Do not stir.
  7. Cover and cook on low heat setting for 7 to 9 hours, or on high heat setting for 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 hours.
  8. To serve, transfer cabbage rolls to a large serving platter and top with sauce. Serve at once.
