Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls in a CP?

I'm playing with an idea and I would love any input anyone may have.

I love stuffed cabbage but I'm too lazy to do it the proper way.

I am thinking about an unstuffed cabbage roll recipe for CP. Here's what I'm thinking layer CP with some chopped, raw cabbage, next layer sliced onion, then gr. beef or maybe slivered cube steak. then another layer of cabbage. Next top that with a can or so of diced tomato's, tomato juice and maybe some beef stock. Top with some crumbled ginger snaps.


Does anyone do anything similar? What do you think?

Two thoughts:

If you use whole cabbage leaves or large pieces of leaf, you could layer it like a lasagna. The whole leaves would keep things together for serving. IF...

...you made in a baking dish like a 13x9 pan and covered it with foil and baked it in the oven.

I know it's not exactly what you asked, but it's a thought.

I don't use a crockpot much, but I have done cabbage just the way you said--I bake it in the oven. (No ginger snaps--never heard of that.)

I have always had it filled with a mix of ground pork/veal/rice and nothing as tough as cube steak. I bet the layer thing would be good if you dont mind the filling getting the tomato sauce flavor.I think the rolls keep the filling from getting too much liquid and falling apart while slow cooking.

Thanks for everyone's help. I'm going to have to think about it some more and look at some of my stash of cook books. BTW, the gingersnaps crumbled on top is to replicate the brown suger and spices added to the tomato sauce that many cabbage roll recipe's have. I forgot where I heard of that trick. It may well be way too sweet.

cp = crock pot

I've had cabbage rolls deconstructed into a soup, it was fabulous.

I'd just shred the cabbage mix it will all of the other ingredients (casserole style) and let it cook that way in the crockpot or covered up in the oven.

I like both thoughts Andy. I was thinking the first one also. I am assuming the OP wants to use the CP while they are at work. If this is not the case, then your second idea would be much better and closer to the true taste of cabbage rolls. You may have just created a new dish. Andy's Unrolled Cabbage Rolls.
