Crock Pot Cabbage and Ham - TSLC

This crock pot cabbage and ham is total comfort food and so easy to prepare in the crockpot.  Serve it with some fried cornbread or some cornbread muffins to make a meal. Make this with fresh garden vegetables for a real treat.

4 or 5 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 cup celery, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cups ham, cooked and cut into chunks
1/2 head cabbage, shredded or chopped
1 (1 pound) bag baby carrots (can use regular carrots)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 large bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
2 (14 ounce) cans chicken broth
Add all the ingredients to the slow cooker or crockpot. Cover with the chicken broth. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.  Remove bay leaf. Serve. Enjoy!
Note: I actually thought this was better the second day than the first!

  2. This sounds delicious! Two questions – 1) how many servings is this; and 2) what size crock pot is needed?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      I used a 3 quart crock pot and it is usually full. Probably makes 8 to 10 servings. You could cut in half if you want to make less.

  3. Do you cook the cabbage first ?

  4. Helen Luksan says:

    I am making this tomorrow with leftover ham & some fresh cabbage in the fridge. I want to thank you heartily for sharing your wonderful talent for delicious meals. I enjoy making your recipes! They bring cheer as well as being so very good!!

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Thank you for your kind comment, Helen. So happy you enjoy the recipes and happy to have you on the site. Have a great week ahead.

  5. Why would anyone not LOVE their crockpot??? Everything come out SOOOOO good when you cook in it!

  6. I decided to skip the ham (cooking a corned beef brisket today), and used the whole head of cabbage. Either my crock pot isn’t as big as I thought it was, or the cabbage was bigger… but I had to finish this one the stove in a large dutch oven… Which was really no problem, and well worth it, because this is so delicious! It was just so packed in the crock pot. It wasn’t cooking fast enough to be ready for dinner. Next time, I’ll use less cabbage, or set aside a bit more time.

  7. Have been fixing this for years, and sometimes I use pork stew or boneless pork chops.

  8. We called this Boiled Dinner growing up – but I never tried doing it in the crock pot. This is going to be so much easier to make going forward – can put in before work and come home to deliciousness!

    I agree…this sounds great and will definitely have this one night this week with cornbread!

  11. This looks so good I can’t wait to make it.

  12. Something like this used to be my Birthday dinner each year. I love the combination. I really like crockpot dishes. Balisha

  13. I don’t know why I’m stand-offish about using my crockpot, but this recipe sounds good enough to make me want to over come that today! I love ham ; )

  14. I’ve really got to start using my crock pot more…this sounds super easy.

  15. That looks just delicious!
