Wrap it up like a present. Folding the sides in and rolling up, kind of like an egg roll.

Pour the tomato sauce mixture over everything in the crockpot and cook on low 6-8 hours. Do not cook less than this or the rice will not cook through.

In my picture there is swiss cheese draped over the stuffed cabbage that I decided to add to it last second.  I do not recommend this as it was really overpowering.  It seemed like a good idea at the time that swiss cheese would taste really good with sauerkraut but it took away from all of the other flavors.
