After this additional half hour has passed, open the lid, mix all ingredients and cover again. Cook for an additional HOUR on LOW setting.

Mix one more time and then cover again (last time, promise!) and then cook for an additional half an hour until cabbage has braised beautifully and very aromatic.

Every slow cooker is different, and maintains temperature differently. Some older models' "low" temperature setting is much lower than some newer models "low" temperature setting. 

If unsure about the time setting on your slow cooker, you may opt to set it on "WARM" and braise contents for a longer period of time.
