I used lean ground beef, cooked it w/ 2 onions and tons of garlic powder, basil, paprika, and white pepper, then drained it. In the crock pot I put the meat mixture, 1 can Itailian style tomatoes, 1 large can of Hunt's low sugar spag. sauce, 1 roasted red bell pepper, and the cabbage cut into large strips. I turned it on high for 2 hours around 1 pm. By the time I got back, the cabbage was done, so I just kept it on warm until 30 minutes before dinner. I cooked 3/4 cup of buckwheat groats w/ and egg white and 1 1/2 cups of water and added it to the beef and cabbage. My husband was so surprised when he came home! My daughter, who is not a fan of cabbage, has eaten this for lunch & dinner for the last 2 days, and is having the last bit for lunch today as well. It is hard not to over cook the cabbage, that is why I kept an eye on it, otherwise it would have turned to mush. I don't know about not cooking the meat first either...I think the recipe would turn out way too greasy.
