READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by ChipotleChick

My mom's recipe. It is delicious without the ham also! Robust and filling, especially served with a nice rustic loaf of bread!

A fast & easy prep meal, hearty and yummy, especially in cold weather. Peeling potatoes takes the longest; everything else is basically "toss in the pot." The cabbage adds a little something extra to the flavor. I've also made it without the ham and it's just as good.
