Delicious Cabbage Stew

This week I started throwing dinner together after lunch and leaving it in the crock pot.  Big time-saver!!  It is nice to not have to rush and scramble to come up with something at 5 o'clock. Recently, I have been setting aside some time to assemble freezer meals (plan to share recipe and tips soon!)and those are wonderful!!

I never used to use cabbage for anything but making slaw. I would buy the whole head from the store, use half of it and the rest would go bad before I could think of something else to make with it. But slowly I am finding new ways to use this veggie.  My friend Melanie inspired me to make cabbage rolls with ground beef and cheese last year, and now I frequently make a yummy Filipino-Style Stir fry (compliments to my sister in law Mari for teaching me this authentic dish!)and Cabbage stew.  I made this stew last year and loved it!!  My hubby is a big fan too!   Here is a simple, quick recipe for cabbage stew.

1/2 large onion, chopped
4 Tablespoons butter
28 ounces (2 cans of stewed tomatoes)
1 cup beef broth
1/2 lb cooked ground beef or turkey
2-3 cups chopped raw cabbage
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste

Sautée onions in butter n a large pot over medium heat, until translucent.  Add the rest of the ingredients, cook until cabbage is wilted and tender.  Be sure to serve with crusty bread!  Enjoy!!!


  1. Yum. That looks really good to me right now. :)

  2. Awe, I bet!! Wish we lived closer I would make food for you! That first 3 months can be rough! Praying for ya sister!
