One day I made this stew for myself (God forbid the kids ever put cabbage in their mouths)They(the kids) accidently ate it mistaking it for my beef stew. They called me on my cell phone and told me that was the best stew I had ever made. I just let it be my little secret about cabbage.
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 medium red onion, chopped
- 1⁄2 medium cabbage, cored and chopped
- 14 ounces stewed tomatoes
- 6 small red potatoes, fourthed
- 2 medium carrots, chopped
- 1 red peppers or 1 yellow peppers or 1 green pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon thyme
- 1 cup vegetable broth (I sometimes use beef broth)
- 1 cup corn
- 1 cup green beans
- 1⁄2 lb lean ground beef
for spicier stew
- 1 teaspoon chili powder

- Brown ground beef and drain;set aside.
- Heat olive oil in skillet and add onion and cook 2-3 minutes.
- add cabbage, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, bell pepper, thyme.

- cover and cook 20 minutes.
- stir in corn and beans.
- cover and cook 15 minutes.
Yummy! It could be spicier than the spicy option, but this pulled together very nicely and tasted great. And it didn't have the cabbage-y smell, even left over, to dissuade anyone else. Almost every recipe I find online, I need to double the veggies (or halve the meat) at least once to get it the way I like it, but not this one!
We used a bag of frozen baby veggies, and added a can of chicken broth. This was so good! I can't wait ofr the leftovers tomorrow.
AWESOME RECIPE!!! Only recipe change was to use one can of beef broth and I too added an extra quart (4 cups) water. This is so homey and good! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe :-)
