Kapuzta Recipe

This is a truly authentic "Old World recipe"—friends of our family who moved here from Poland gave it to my mother years ago. It's been a favorite Sunday dinner with all of us ever since then. I've found that it's always a hit at potluck dinners, too. After my husband and I moved to our dairy farm, I discovered that this hearty, one-dish dinner was a perfect one for our busy schedule...and that any leftovers taste even better the second day!
