  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in leeks and mushrooms until they begin to soften, about 8 minutes. Crumble lamb into skillet, add garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lamb loses its pink color, about 8 minutes. Drain liquid from pan.
  2. Stir in broth, dill, garlic and herb seasoning blend, pepper, onion powder, bay leaf, and potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until potatoes are almost tender, about 12 minutes. Add tomato sauce and shredded cabbage. Increase heat to medium and simmer, covered, until cabbage is cooked and potatoes are tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Remove bay leaf and serve.

What a surprise, it was delicious, made no changes. Will be making this a lot

Nice easy supper. I'm almost embarrassed to say I had no tomato sauce so I used salsa, a scanty amount.

Instead of using lamb, I used smoked sausage from my butcher. It was amazing!

It was delicious. Skipped on bay leaves because i couldn't find any, but none-the-less great.
