Looking for lower carb recipes? Look no further! We’ve found this tasty alternative to high-carb stews by Kristine Fretwell, host of Busy, But Healthy. Here’s what Kristine has to say about her fabulous Lower Carb Cabbage Roll Stew:
Hey everyone at SkinnyMs.! I’m super excited to share one of my favorite slow cooker recipes with you! It’s my recipe for slow cooker lower carb cabbage stew.
Growing up, cabbage rolls were a regular staple in our house. With my grandma being part Ukrainian, she made them quite often, and we certainly didn’t object! She was an expert at making them. Tightly wrapped to perfection, all uniform in size and drizzled with a delicious tomato sauce.
Fast forward to me as an adult…I’ve made cabbage rolls numerous times, but I don’t have the patience (or skill) to make them like my grandma did. Let’s face it, being a busy working mom, I rarely have the time! That’s why slow cooker methods are so amazing! It has all the flavor, but without all the fuss! I also lowered the carb content by not using brown rice. By using lower sodium stock and tomatoes, it also lessens the salt too! I find it just as satisfying without the rice, but if you’d like to add it, by all means, go for it!
