This was very much enjoyed tonight. This was an unusual stew for us but I think I might be convincing DH that different doesn't mean bad. I paired this with Recipe #441475 to help replace his beloved potatoes and the two recipes work very well together. The beef (I used stew chunks cut into 1.5 to 2 inch squares) came out very tender and the cabbage was great! Thanks very much for locating and posting BK. Made for ZWT7,
