A customer at my beauty salon shared this recipe with me a few years ago. I especially like it because it's hearty and economical. Plus, it makes a big batch. You can take it to various potlucks and be assured of receiving many compliments! - Vera Bouteller, Nolanville, Texas
- 3 pounds ground beef
- 2 medium heads cabbage, chopped
- 2 large onions, chopped
- 2 cans (15 ounces each) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
- 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- Salt to taste
- In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Meanwhile, in a soup kettle or Dutch oven, combine cabbage and onions. Cook and stir over medium heat for 10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add the beans, tomatoes, vinegar, sugar and salt. Drain beef; add to stew. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2 hours. Yield: 16-18 servings.
