Sweet Russian Cabbage Stew

Cabbage has been available through the Rock Op Local Co-Op the past few orders. I figured that it's a local in season vegetable and I should try to find something to cook it in! I found this recipe on AllRecipes.com and it seemed like something I could enjoy. Note that my ground beef came from the co-op as well.

Overall we did enjoy it. Dear husband says that next time I should slice the cabbage pieces smaller, it was like eating big long noodles! Also, look through the stew reviews on AllRecipes. Some people added less sugar and more vinegar. That might be worth trying. I hope you enjoy this recipe too or at least find some use for cabbage!

Sweet Russian Cabbage Stew

1 1/2 pounds ground lean beef
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
4 cubes beef bouillon
2 medium carrots, shredded
1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 quarts water, divided
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 head cabbage, cored and cut into wedges

1. Crumble the ground beef into a large pot. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef bouillon cubes, carrots, onion, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Pour in 1 quart of water, and bring to a boil. Stir to break up the beef while heating. Once the soup comes to a boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes over low heat.
2. Pour in another quart of water, and return to a slow boil. Add garlic and cabbage. Simmer for 25 minutes, until cabbage is tender. Ladle into soup bowls to serve.
