Hearty Hamburger Supper

My husband and I are retired and enjoy home cooking. This hearty stovetop meal proves it need not be time-consuming. I gave this recipe to a young neighbor who tells me she uses it often since she's a nurse and is always short of time. —Georgene Remm Wausa, Nebraska

    To "acooley1" - if thick and gloppy - - slowly add more milk

    I hate to not give this a better rating, since everyone else seemed to enjoy it, but we really didn't like it all that much. I followed the recipe, but there was practically no sauce by the time the cabbage was cooked. It was thick, gloppy, and pretty unappetizing. Sorry guys, but this one just wasn't for me.

    Made it with red potatoes, and it was very good. Ten minutes of simmering and the cabbage was perfect.
