My Dad found this recipe in the local newspaper years ago right around Super Bowl time, and I've been making it ever since.The flavors of the ingredients blend nicely and it makes a hearty meal when served with a salad and sliced bread.

I have made this three times and enjoyed it more each time. First time I did it "by the book" and was amazed how the flavors blended together. The last two times I made it, I chopped the cabbage instead of shredding it. It cooked down a little thicker, which is how I like it. The leftovers are even better the next day or so. Thanks for a great recipe!
