Gary's StoryThis 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.
Tomatoes 15 oz. diced whole or sliced
1 1/2 lb
Medium to large head of Cabbage

1Cook Hamburger in frying pan and chop, leave coarse. Add chopped onion near end of cooking. Drain hamburger and reserve and utilize 3 or 4 tablespoons of the juices.
2In 4 quart soup pot put in Tomatoes and one 15 oz. can of water. Chop raw cabbage to about the size of a nickle and add to tomatoes. Add Oregano and Basil, or substitute 2 tablespoon Italian Seasoning. Add 2 tablespoons Butter. Add cooked Hamburger and Onions and dash of Salt and Pepper.
3Cook and low simmer for one hour. Add additional can of water 15 minutes before end of cooking. Test Cabbage for tenderness, when tender soup is done.
4If you like Cabbage this is a good Chili alternative. It's always a hit at our house.
5Note: The ingredients could be prepared in a a crock pot after Hamburger is cooked.

This sounds wonderful. When do you add the cabbage.

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.
