We love cabbage and liked this recipe. I also omitted the tomato soup but added the ketchup with the tomato sauce. The minced garlic, oregano, basil and thyme gave the sauce an excellent taste. Next time I will make this recipe with chicken pieces instead of the round steak for variety. Thanks for this recipe idea Chef, and good luck in the Dining on a Dollar Contest.
This was delicious. I thought the addition of so much ketchup, tomato sauce and tomato soup was too much, so I omitted the canned tomato soup and went with the ketchup and next bigger size can of tomato sauce. And I thought it was a good outcome. But the truly great thing about this recipe was that the chopped cabbage and green pepper added a lot of flavor to the pan sauce that made a hearty and tasty meal when I enjoyed leftover noodles and sauce (no more beef left) the next day. I did include the beef when I first made this dish though, but I wouldn't hesitate to make this again without the beef, because I know we'll enjoy it all the same.
