Cabbage Goulash Recipe

Cabbage Goulash Recipe

Cabbage is a very Southern dish. People who don't even like cabbage love this recipe. This goulash is good served with French bread or hard rolls, and I usually make a pot of pinto beans to go along with it.

"What a fantastic dish! Very appetizing!"

"I used all sausage, no hamburger. Added few carrot sticks. Added Sriracha sauce. Excellent! I don't think it'd ever make 10-12 servings tho, so have re-calculate the calories. Good for low carb diets."

"It wasn't the worst thing I've ever had, but I thought it left a lot to be desired. It just didn't seem like the ingredients really meshed together. No one at my house was crazy about it."

"I used leftover cooked beef. I added one quart home canned tomatoes chopped instead of diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Some did not think they would like it, but they did."

"Made this tonight and it's a definite keeper! I cut the recipe in half. I did not use any sausage so used a pound of ground beef. My beef was already cooked so I waited to put the meat in later after I had let the cabbage cook down. I kept the lid on with the cabbage mixture so it would retain the moisture and not dry out. I fixed a pouch of Uncle Ben's Ready Rice to go with. We put the rice on our plates and then the goulash over it. I also made some boiled potatoes and put out the pickled beets. Our son wouldn't touch it but our daughter ate every bit of a fairly large helping. It was a big hit with my husband as well. I loved the flavors and the ease of making it. I had almost a head of cabbage to use up and glad I tried this recipe!"
