3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Ham and Cabbage

slow cooker ham and cabbage

This is a really easy and low prep meal. A real comfort food option.

Grab your slow cooker.  The only ingredients are ham, potatoes, cabbage, salt and pepper. (You can add onions, but my kids won't eat it.) You can put any amount you desire of each ingredient and it will still taste delicious.  We usually like to use an equal amount of each ingredient, but i just guess.  Does it get an easier than that?

Peel at least one potato for each person.

Cut into approximately 1" cubes.

Always rinse your cut potatoes to wash off the starch.

Place in Slow Cooker.

Salt and Pepper.

Core one whole cabbage.

Cut into wedges.

Place in slow cooker and salt and pepper.

Cut up ham into 1-2" chunks.  We tried spiral ham for the first time, it worked OK, but I recommend unsliced. You can trim the fat if desired.

Add to slow cooker and salt & pepper once more.

Stir ingredients together and cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4 hours until done.
 Stir occasionally.

If you have extra cabbage you can add more as the cabbage cooks down.

Serve with Rolls or French Bread and enjoy!
