“I agree that this is a very good recipe. My 93-year-old mother-in-law has recently told me that this is the best meal I have ever brought her, and there have been many. All the veggie prep can be done while the onions and bay leaves are simmering. I do add more broth when the veggies go in. The cabbage will add a significant amount of water but the beef flavor is key. It will freeze great in resealable bags for a quick meal so I normally double the recipe when going to this effort, which in my opinion is well worth it. The 2 hour simmering step for the beef can be done the day before.” - by pmplyler
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Cook and stir stew meat in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat until browned on all sides, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain any excess grease.
- Stir beef bouillon into beef broth in a bowl until dissolved; pour over stew meat. Add onion, black pepper, and bay leaf; cover and simmer until stew meat is very tender, at least 2 hours. Add potatoes, cabbage, celery, and carrot; cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, 30 to 45 more minutes.
- Stir tomato sauce and salt into the stew; simmer, uncovered, until tomato sauce is fully incorporated and flavors have blended, 15 to 20 minutes.

"Very nice pretty healthy recipe. I used all the same ingredients but changed up the prep order to make it easier for me to put together on a busy day. I diced up the onion, carrots (used a lot more ..." See morecarrots) celery. Cooked the beef, added the onions, carrots and celery and cooked that a bit, added the broth & bouillon cube, tomato sauce - brought to a low simmer - added the potatoes and turned the heat down to low and let simmer - just before serving I added the cabbage and let simmer while the rolls baked. No added salt was needed. Perfectly easy weeknight meal. This can all be done using the crockpot - start of the stove and finish the simmer and cabbage in the crockpot."

"I absolutely loved this recipe but I did make some changes. Instead of the tomato sauce I used 1 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes with the juice and a small can of tomato paste. I also added a can of d..." See morerained corn and a gutted and diced jalapeno to add a little kick. I added these along with the rest of the veggies and let it simmer for 70 minutes. Both myself and my partner absolutely loved it!"
