The oncoming winter months always makes me think of my grandmother and the wonderful stews and soups that were always cooking on the stove, the bouquet driving your taste buds wild from the minute you walked in the door.
One of the staples of grannies kitchen was cabbage. She could make wonderful dishes using cabbage as a main ingredient. One of my favorite dishes was a stew made from ground meat and cabbage. I would like to share it with you; I hope you enjoy it as much as our family does.'
2 pounds ground meat (browned and drained)
2 TBS olive oil
1 large onion (chopped)
2 carrots (grated)
1 head cabbage (finely chopped)
1 large can tomato juice
3 to 4 potatoes (cubed)
4 Cups favorite vegetables (chopped)
1 ½ tsp Cajun seasoning
1 tsp chili peppers (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Brown your favorite ground meat, drain and set aside. Put olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add chopped onion, grated carrots and chopped cabbage. Sauté and toss for one minute. Add ground meat, tomato juice and spices. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes or until cabbage is tender. Add potatoes and vegetables, bring to a boil then turn heat down and simmer for an additional 30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with warm corn bread.
