What is Coleslaw Mix Made Of?
Coleslaw mix is a prepackaged mix of shredded cabbage (and usually carrot) which is sold in the produce section of most markets in with the other bags of lettuces and greens. If a store-bought mix isn't your bag, just thinly slice your choice of green or red cabbage, and/or carrots to make your own.
Crock Pot Cabbage Roll Casserole Recipe Notes
Using bagged coleslaw mix, keeps the preparation of this soup really quick. You can always shred your own, if you prefer, either with a knife or the food processor .
I used lean ground beef to make this easy crockpot casserole. You could easily use lean ground turkey if you prefer.
Additional seasonings: I kept the seasonings super simple. If you want to bump up the flavor consider adding a splash or two of Worcestershire sauce and/or smoked paprika instead of the regular kind.

Easy Slow Cooker Cabbage Roll Casserole Recipe
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- ½ cup chopped onion
- 5 cups coleslaw mix
- ½ cup uncooked, converted rice (I used Uncle Ben's)
- ¼ cup water
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 1 can (14 - 15 ounces) Italian-style tomato sauce
- Ideal slow cooker size: 4-Quart
- Grease the inside of the slow cooker.
- In a large skillet, cook the beef and onion, stirring occasionally, until the beef is no longer pink. Drain off any grease.
- Scrape the beef and onion mixture into the slow cooker.
- Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. (The cooker will be full, but the cabbage will shrink a lot during cooking.)
- Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours, or until the cabbage is tender.
