Beef Cabbage Stew

It's the season for comfort food and cabbage is one of those foods. This is a hearty stew that is wonderful served with fresh rolls on a cold day. This stew is a little spicy although I found it just right for my palate. I think this recipe would work well in a crock pot too.
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 4 cups green cabbage, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 1 can 540 ml / 19 oz kidney beans
  • 1 can 398 ml / 14 oz diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup tomato sauce, I used a hot and spicy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  1. In a large sauce pan over medium heat cook beef, celery and onion and cook until lightly browned. 
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature to low and simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until cabbage and carrots are tender. 
  3. Serve with warm rolls.
  4. Serves: 6 - 8 


  1. This would hit the spot on a cold, dreary day. I like the addition of the "spicy" flavors.

  2. Oh my that looks delicious Betty! The snow is falling over here this morning so this would be the perfect thing to have simmering on the stove.
