I have over 300 e-mails from a recipe site I have been on for years and used to keep up with. Well between looking on here and starting to organize and go through them to save and delete, this one just sounded good to me....... ah stupid space bar keeps sticking anyone know how to unsticky a space bar ? I just copied and pasted it the way it was Cabbage Patch Stew 1 lb. ground beef or turkey or chicken 2 medium onions, thinly sliced 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped cabbage 1/2 cup chopped celery 1 16 oz. can stewed tomatoes (I use Rotel - the mild) 1 15 1/2 oz can kidney beans (or whatever kind you prefer - I use pinto a lot) 1 cup water 1 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. pepper 1-2 tsp. chili powder Cook and stir ground meat in dutch oven until brown: drain. Add onions, cabbage and celery, cook and stir until vegetables are light brown. Stir in tomatoes, kidney beans ( with liquid), water, salt, pepper and chili powder. Heat to boiling. The Dumplings 2 cups all-purpose flour (King Arthur White Whole Wheat) 1 tablespoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup shortening 2/3 to 3/4 cup milk Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Add milk, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat out to 1/8-inch thickness; sprinkle lightly with flour, and cut into 3- x 2-inch strips. Bring broth mixture to a boil. Drop strips, 1 at a time, onto gently boiling stew. Reduce heat, cover pot and simmer, 20 minutes. I eat mine without the dumplings, but the recipe does call for them. This stew would be delicious with a hunk of buttered cornbread on the side!
