Sweet and Sour Cabbage (Diabetic Version)

LoriAnn Poland


This is a bit of work but worth it. Both my parents became diabetic later in life and we had to find ways to adjust recipes for their health needs.

Makes 3 quarts
30 Min
45 Min


2 - 28 oz
cans plum tomatoes and juice
28 oz
1/2 c
fresh lemon juice
1 - 12 oz
can frozen apple juice, undiluted
5 tsp
1 c
peppercorns, whole black
bay leaf
1/4 tsp
cardamon, ground
1/4 tsp
coriander, ground
2 tsp
splenda sweetner (or any sweetner without aspertame)
3 lb
boneless chuck for stewing
2 large
heads of cabbage, coarsely sliced


1Place all the ingredients, except the meat and the cabbage, in a very large pot. Bring to a boil and add the meat. Cook slowly. When meat is almost tender, add all of the cabbage. If more liquid is needed, add a little water.

2After the cabbage has cooked for a short time, adjust the seasonings - lemon juice and salt for the sweet and sour flavor. Salt is the trick in achieving the sweet and sour flavor, but be careful -just a little at a time.

3Simmer for an additional 45 minutes.
Remove the bay leaf after removing from the heat.
