My husband loved this, and I was surprised at how flavorful it was without broth. The cabbage and spices really make it nice with the ham. I did not add greens the first time but am adding some to the batch I'm making now. I agree with one reviewer though, you need MUCH more than just 1 cup of water...I just add enough to make sure it's all covered. A keeper in this house!


We thought it was going to be bland, turned out we wrong. It is not spicy, but, very, very tasty. We really enjoyed it. Serve with a Rye bread for a filling meal. The ham I used was Black Forest-organic. The ham is a big part of this dish. Get the best quality ham you can, you won't regret it. The salt I added was 1/2 tsp. and ground up a bunch of black pepper. It wasn't salty, which I thought it was going to be. All around great recipe-Thanks


has a good flavor but with all the other ingrecients found that 1c. water was not enough liquid for the end results. You need more like 2-3 cups of liquid
