Simmered Cabbage and Tomatoes

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Parsley

A meatless cabbage skillet dish. This works in the crockpot, too. Just put everything in the crockpot at once EXCEPT the cream cheese and cook on low 6-8 hours or high for about 3 hours. Stir the cream cheese in when done.

Sorry for the not so good rating. I didn't like the addition of cream cheese. Maybe I would prefer it without cream cheese. But usually I like cream cheese, that's why I thought I would like it. Thanks for posting :) Made for Newest Zaar tag.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large, deep skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Saute onions in the butter for about 5 minutes or until softening.
  2. To the skillet, add the crushed tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano and clery seeds; stir well and bring to just a soft boil.
  3. Place chopped cabbage on top (the skillet will be full, but the cabbage will wilt down); reduce heat to medium-low, cover tightly and simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove lid and stir. Replace lid and simmer for an additional 20-25 minutes, (stirring once halfway through) or until desired tenderness is reached. If it appears to drying, just add a little water/broth.
  5. Turn off heat. Stir in the cream cheese; heat through and serve.
  6. ***For Crockpot: Put everthing in the crockpot EXCEPT the cream cheese. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for about 3 hours (depends on how tender you like your cabbage). When done, stir in the cream cheese.
