“This is a really delicious recipe that I've been making for years. Everyone who tries it wants the recipe! You have to spend a little time chopping all the veggies, but once you do, you just pop it into the slow cooker and let it go! Husband approved. :)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the beef and all the chopped vegetables except the cabbage in your slow cooker. You're going to need a BIG oval one; if you have a smaller crock pot, you'll need to adjust the recipe accordingly.
  2. Combine 2 cups of the beef broth with the tomato paste, vinegar, brown sugar, parsley, salt, dill weed, pepper, and bay leaf. Mix to combine, then pour over the vegetable/beef mix.
  3. If the vegetable/beef mix is not completely covered by the liquid, top off with the extra beef broth until they are.
  4. Cover and cook on the low heat setting for 8 and 1/2 hours. You can cheat and use high heat for 4 hours if you're in a hurry, but don't expect it to be as good.
  5. When the 8 and 1/2 hours are up, turn your cooker onto high heat and add the shredded cabbage. Cover again and cook on high for 30 minutes to an hour depending upon how soft you like your cabbage.
  6. Remove the bay leaf. Ladle into a bowl and garnish with two tablespoons of sour cream.
