Meat Cabbage Casserole (microwave version)

Rev BJ Friley


Microwave setting: HIGH 100%

If you like the onions real soft, start by microwaving them in the butter first. Then add the meat and cook again according to the recipe directions. Onions have a tendency to remain hard if not cooked separately.
