KANSAS CITY BACON & CABBAGE ( a smoked butt clone)

Nancy J. Patrykus


I love stews...this is another one I put together...then went shopping.
When I came home dinner was ready.
A pan of corn bread,reheated made
a meal fit for for a king!
In winter months, I do love a rib stickin meal!
My table is by my patio doors,so I can watch the snow flakes floating down when I eat.
SNOW and STEWS...they just seem to go together! Here in SPOKANE you can't find a "Smoked Butt" anywhere! I did find this smoked meat package by accident in the freezer.So I decided to make this dish. It is the nearest I could find to a butt.
Once cooked,I thought I died & went to heaven.
