CROCK POT CABBAGE AND HAM

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

Crock Pot Cabbage and Ham

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 crock pot. Cover with the chicken broth. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.  Remove bay leaf. Serve.  6-8 servings.

Note: I actually thought this was better the second day than the first!

Love this comment from Barry: “This recipe is wonderful! I follow it very closely except I only use two medium-large potatoes and add more cabbage. It is very rich and flavorful. I actually believe it even tastes better reheated the next day! Thank you for sharing.”

  1. Thank you so much for this crockpot recipe! My mom often made this on the stovetop when we were kids…so I am thrilled to make it for her today. It’s a huge amount of food (I will invite my boyfriend over to share). I will freeze a large portion and bring it as a surprise in a few weeks when I visit my parents 😉 Blessings to you…5 stars

  2. Just finished serving the ham and cabbage dinner. What a tasteful, wonderful, easy St. Patrick’s Day dinner! Even the fussy eaters loved it. Thank you for sharing the recipe.5 stars

  3. I’ve been making this for years, one of my family’s favorites. A little tip is to add the prepackaged small potatoes from The Little Potato Company and also add the spice pack that comes with it! Our favorite is the garlic and parsley. Makes assembly super easy!5 stars

  4. Great recipe! I didn’t have ham, only smoked sausage. I also added 2 cups of V8 Tomato juice. My one year old grandson had 2 helping of it today for lunch!! The 2.5 year old wouldn’t even try it! Delicious, thanks!5 stars

  5. This recipe is wonderful! I follow it very closely except I only use two medium-large potatoes and add more cabbage. It is very rich and flavorful. I actually believe it even tastes better reheated the next day! Thank you for sharing.5 stars

  6. Hi there!

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. Sounds delicious!
    I had a question —I’m making it with a few additions & wanted to know how much liquid you recommend? Should it cover the ingredients before cooking? I always add to much liquid to my crockpot meals and they come out extra soupy!! 🙂

    1. You may be ok to just add what is called for but if you are adding several things, you could add another can of broth.

  7. I can’t wait to try this recipe tomorrow.❤️
    Thank you so much Southernlady for sharing your amazing recipes. I feel like you are a family friend. May God bless you forever in all that you do.

    1. That is such a sweet comment and thank you for being a part of our community. We are so glad you are enjoying the recipes and we think of our followers as friends and always enjoy hearing from you and others. Have a wonderful week ahead.

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

    1. 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.

  10. 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!!

    1. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

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

  14. I made this recipe of crockpot cabbage and ham, it was very good, I made it on a sunday, for Monday, but they could’nt wait, ate some Sunday night!!

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

  16. 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 ; )
