Gary's Story

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.


3 can(s)
Tomatoes 15 oz. diced whole or sliced
1 1/2 lb
Medium to large head of Cabbage
1 Tbsp
Oregano, dried
1 Tbsp
Basil, dried
2 Tbsp

Medium Onion diced
Salt and Pepper
2 can(s)
Water 15 oz. each

Directions Step-By-Step

Cook 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.
In 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.
Cook 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.
If you like Cabbage this is a good Chili alternative. It's always a hit at our house.
Note: The ingredients could be prepared in a a crock pot after Hamburger is cooked.
