German-Style Cabbage and Beans Recipe
This is one of my greatest hits as a potluck dish at church suppers. If you use some red cabbage, it will have very festive colors, light pink with green. It looks so pretty.Winifred Winch, Wetmore, Michigan

Incredibly delicious!! The BEST bean recipe I have ever made and/or tasted. Pairs well with Cran-Orange Pork Tenderloin.
