Gary's notes for this recipe:
This is a great Chili alternative on a cold winter day. A good friend Jean Smith from Joilet, IL gave me this recipe in 1972. If you like cabbage it's a winner.

This sounds wonderful. When do you add the cabbage.
user Gary Hancq SidEFied - Oct 2, 2010
Barbara, Excellent question. I forgot to say. I cut up cabbage about the size of a nickle and add the raw cabbage right away with the tomatoes. I'll add to the instructions. Thanks.

I make this a lot, my daughters love it. I add a handful of instant rice to it before it's done.
