From The Everyday Low-Carb Slow Cooker Cookbook by Kitty Broihier & Kimberly Mayone. "These flavors may remind you of something your grandmother used to cook. A great dish for a simple fall supper." Serving suggestion - Serve this dish with toasted, buttered, low-carb rye bread. If desired, pass malt vinegar and butter to season the cabbage.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coat the slow cooker crock with cooking spray. Add all the ingredients except the kielbasa to the crock, tossing so that the cabbage is well-coated with the broth and seasonings. Top mixture with kielbasa.
  2. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 hours; give mixture a good stir, then cook 1 hour more.

This did remind me of grandma, but was better than my memories of her. Bua is the Icelandic equivalent of kielbasa & very close to it in taste. Larger than kielbasa, I cut it in approx 1.5 in chunks, added garlic as a pers pref & otherwise made the recipe as written (altho I admit to tossing in a few red potatoes to comply w/Icelandic law requiring them w/all meals). The crock-pot method makes getting this to the table nearly effortless & you are impatient for it as the aroma is wonderful. The cabbage flavour is excellent using Dijon for the mustard & I could not bear discarding the tasty liquid, so I added about 1/2 cup cream cheese to it & sent it to the table as a light sauce for the potatoes. Thx for sharing this keeper recipe w/us. :-)

My HB didn't think he would like it, but ended up getting a second serving. I made 1 change I didn't have brown mustard, so I empravised with some spicy mustard with mustard seed I had on hand. It turned out great with a little kick to it!

We had this for dinner tonight and loved the ease of the recipe. For us, 8 hours was too long - the veggies were over done. Next time I will probably cook 6 to 7 hours. I cut my meat into slices verses chunks. I will defintely make again. Thanks for posting.
