Poor (Wo)man's Cabbage Soup - Frugal & Nourishing Slow Cooker Meal

Poor (Wo)man’s Cabbage Soup


  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 1 medium to large onion
  • 1+ C homemade chicken stock
  • 1 pkg bratwurst (4-5 of your favorite locally raised brats or a trusted brand w/no antibiotics or hormones raised on pasture)
  • Garlic (fresh or 1t garlic like this, or more if you really like garlic)
  • Sea salt & white pepper, to taste

Make It:

  • Coarsely chop your washed cabbage
  • Slice your onion
  • Place onions in bottom of crock pot
  • Put cabbage on top
  • Add seasonings
  • Pour chicken stock over top (enough to cover everything halfway)
  • Place bratwurst on top of everything (no, the liquid does not have to cover them)
  • Cook on high for about 3 hours
  • Remove brats, slice, then add back into your slow cooker
  • Enjoy your cheap and nourishing meal!

Seriously, this is a frugal and delicious meal that will serve your family a few times for a few days.

Also, feel free to get creative! Add in any other spices that you love, possibly some carrots…yummo!

Until next time…

    I’m wanting to look at blogs containing music I like, but sifting through all the detached, outdated and crap blogs is a hassle. . I know there are thousands of blogs, is there a good resource to seek out the preferred ones?.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a
    lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced
    but it looks like a lot of it is popping it
    up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from
    being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.
