I searched allrecipes.com for some ideas and came across this. I read a lot of the reviews and decided to substitute 2 cups of beer for 2 cups of water (so I only added a cup of water instead of 3 like the recipe calls for) and then threw in another 2 cups of beer for good measure (and yummy flavor!)
I've also been on a roasting kick lately, so instead of letting the cabbage simmer in the slow cooker all day, I roasted it with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Came out better than I expected!
Here was the finished product (which earned rave reviews from the hubs!!)
The carrots, onions and potatoes didn't turn out as mushy as I would have liked, but they were still good!
