Slow Cooker Pork and Cabbage Stew for #SundaySupper

Slow Cooker foods are what we’re all talking about in this weeks edition of #SundaySupper. If you haven’t jumped aboard the slow cooker bandwagon, what are you waiting for? With just a few minutes of preparation in the morning, you can have this amazing dinner of Pork and Cabbage Stew waiting for you the moment you walk in the house later that evening. It’s that simple!

This Pork and Cabbage Stew is something I actually posted a few years ago, but I haven’t made since so I’m considering this a recipe-redo. I’ve only made a few small changes to the original recipe. I increased the amount of pork. I added some chopped celery. I decreased the amount of cabbage I used (with the increase of meat, I didn’t have room for all the cabbage), and I changed out the type of oil I used to brown the meat. I also modified the technique of putting it all together to make it a tad faster and easier…Other than that it’s basically still the same, and the taste is just a good, if not better than I remember!

  1. You know I love the German flavors in this dish. It would be a bowl of comfort for me.

  2. This all sounds perfect to me and will be in my crockpot very soon. I'm such a cabbage fan.

  3. That looks absolutely delicious. Only if I could smell all those wonderful flavors.

  4. I love the combination of pork and cabbage and preparing this dish in the slowcooker makes it even more appealing. Yum!

  5. I seem to gravitate to chicken or beef when using my crock pot, but you've convinced me to go to pork next! What a hearty, delicious stew!
