Delicious, we really liked the stew, very easy to make. we love cabbage and this another good way to fix it. I had ham slices frozen in freezer. Served it with a green salad with fruit.Thank you for the recipe.
This was a hit at dinner. It was a snap to make. I prepared mine in a slow cooker. The only problem was that the sauce didn't thicken up. I served it over brown rice and the family loved it. The next time, I will add more caraway and not add as much water. Thanks Mimi
I made this a little thicker with the cornstarch, added a ton of mushrooms and served it over brown rice. My family LOVES it and we eat it alot!! (even the ones that say they don't like cabbage)
