I have a similar recipe that I was hoping to find on food.com<br/>Here are the differences as I can remember them:<br/>1/2 lb ground beef<br/>granny smith apple<br/>chicken stock instead of beef<br/>There may be a few more differences but it's really close and I love it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add beef, caraway seeds and thyme, cook, stirring until beef is mostly browned, about 4 minutes.
  2. Add in pepper-onion mix and apple; cook, stirring for 2-3 minutes more.
  3. Stir in broth, tomatoes, honey and paprika and adjust the heat so the mixture boils gently. Cook for 8-10 minutes to blend the flavors.
  4. Stir in cabbage and cook until just barely tender, 3-4 minutes more. Season to taste with vinegar, salt and pepper.
