Us Southerners tend to throw everything in a pot for ease and just for something new to try! This one combines almost EVERYTHING you need for a terrific New Year's Day meal. It has your pork and your cabbage, so stir up a pot of this and a pot of black-eyed peas and you've got your New Year's Day meal covered!
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 lb smoked sausage
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 celery ribs, chopped
- 1 minced garlic clove
- 1 medium head of cabbage
- 3⁄4 cup water, plus
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 (14 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
- 1 cup uncooked rice
- salt and pepper
- In large stock pot over medium high heat cook beef, sausage, celery, onion, and garlic until beef is no longer pink.
- Add cabbage, water, stewed tomatoes, and rice.
- Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low.
- Cover and simmer 35 to 40 minutes or until rice is done.
Oh my - this is really good. I used two cans of stewed tomatoes and added a can of beef broth - otherwise there was no liquid at all. Very hearty and hard to stop eating!
I've never really made southern food before, but we're so happy I tried! This recipe was so good! The only changes I made were to use extremely lean ground beef and instant brown rice. It was so comforting on a cold evening and so fast to put together and cook. The leftovers didn't keep as well as I hoped. They became mushy. If you have a tip for storing, I'd love to know because I plan on making this again. Thank for for sharing this great recipe!
Sherrybeth this is so very good! I love cabbage so had to tag this one and wasnt disappointed. I did use two cans of stewed tomatoes and ground round. Wonderful the next day warmed up for lunch. Will be making this again and give it a try in my crockpot. Thank you hon!! Made and reviewed for PAC 2007.
