Good "down home" country cooking! Hubby loved it. I made it according to the recipe (using ham hocks) but I added 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes. Very filling and would be great for a cold winter day. Next time, however, I'll add the cabbage during the last 1/2 hr. of cooking since the cabbage was mush after cooking almost 2 hrs.


I love cabbage and I love beans. I never thought to put them together. Yummy. Changes I made-- omitted the butter and hamhocks, added 2 chicken bouillon cubes instead, and my can of tomatoes was a tad spicy. I did add the sausage as directed but I think it would have been fine without it. So next time I will do it without the sausage. Oh, and instead of soaking the beans over night I followed the directions on the bag and quick soaked them in an hour.


This is an awesome meal. I left out the hocks and cooked the beans with a small amt of bacon grease, left out the butter. Cooked the sausage and drained as much grease as possible! Used some home canned tomatoes and oh was it delish!! Thanks BDuke this one is a keeper!
