Everyone in my family loves stuffed cabbage, but it's time consuming so I can't make it as often as I like. This recipe was developed with the busy, modern family in mind. The crockpot makes it simple to come home to a healthy, gourmet meal! You do have to plan ahead and buy and freeze your cabbage 4-5 days ahead of time to use the freezer trick to separate the leaves. If you are doing this the day of, you can parboil the cabbage in water and separate the leaves one at a time. This will require more time and management at the stove.
