Red Cabbage and Apples – Crock Pot Recipe

Crock pot red cabbage and apples is such an easy dish to make and it is always a hit any time I make it. Using the slow cooker is an ideal way to make this dish.

This recipe is a classic German dish called Blaukraut. This is a vegetable side dish of slow braised cabbage with apples. It has a sweet tart flavour and it tastes amazing!

I remember having it as a kid but I do not know if I ever made it myself. I made this for a family Christmas meal last month and I loved it and knew I had to do it again so I could get a photo and put it on the website.

  • Hi Steve
    your recipe looks delicious, it worth a try .thanks

  • Hello! Thank you soooo much for this recipe! I have been dating my German boyfriend for about 4 years and wanted to “wow” him with an authentic German dinner. He had always talked about Blaukraut. After Googling it, I stumbled on your page a couple years ago and have been making this recipe every since!!! It’s so fantastic! I have made little tweeks to it, but have stuck to your base. I always add cinnamon and today I’m trying it in the slow cooker. Anyhow, I just want to thank you! Because of you I will have something to pass down to my little girls 🙂

  • […] Slow Cooker Red Cabbage and Apples – Preparing this in a slow cooker works very well. I love that you just throw everything in the in the slow cooker and then let it cook away. The finished dish is pretty darn close to the traditional stovetop version! […]
