KANSAS CITY BACON & CABBAGE ( a smoked butt clone)
Nancy J. Patrykus
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.

Save the meat for later.
Add potatoes, carrots, onions and cabbage to the broth in the crockpot. Cook till carrots and potatoes are done ...firm not mushed!

Half way thru add the meat, a little more water...if needed.
