Japanese Cabbage Stew

Beth Renzetti


This came to me from Better Homes & Gardens via Recipe.com. Any recipe that can be cooked in a crockpot can be cooked stovetop. Just soften the onions in a bit of hot oil, brown the meat, add the rest of the ingredients & simmer for about 30 minutes. BOOM! Easy & delicious. Just the way we like it. :)
