About this recipe: An easy recipe, which makes a complete meal in one pot. Ham, carrots, potatoes, cabbage and onions are slow cooked for 6 hours, until perfect. Serve with a side of crusty bread, if desired.
Pearl onions are also known as baby or button onions. If these are unavailable, use chopped mild and sweet onions or small shallots.
Talk about comfort foods! This was my favorite when I was a kid. The only change I would make is to use a "real" ham. Also, I have never tried a slow cooker for this...but am going to give it a shot. Thanks! - 06 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Made this yesterday and I used a real ham but other than that didn't change a thing and it was perfect. Reminds me of my grandmothers cooking. - 21 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I couldn't actually find a 1-lb turkey ham, so I used the 2-lb one... and I'm glad I did. We ate it all and it was fantastic! The 'soup' and veggies that we didn't finish with the first meal, we added some corned beef to a couple of days later to make an improvised corned beef and cabbage. - 12 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
