An interesting combination I threw together one cold day after work. I enjoyed it so much I've made it a regular.

  • 3 potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • ¼ cup chopped onion

  • ½ medium head cabbage, sliced

  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

  • 3 cups water

  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can beer

  • 1 tablespoon prepared Dijon-style mustard

  • ¼ tablespoon garlic powder

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • salt to taste


  1. Bring potatoes, onions, and water to a boil, lower heat to simmer.

  2. Add cabbage and mustard. Slowly add about 1/2 the beer (it will foam up a bit). Cover loosely. Let simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Add the beans, spices, and more/all of the beer to taste. Remove lid, let simmer another 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add water if necessary. Re-spice if needed before serving.
