WOW from the first time I tried this have gotten rave reviews from Family and Friends. Was so impressed after making first time shared it with everyone I know! Have improvised with it a little at times adding a little more Cabbage as we love Cabbage little more Salsa and garlic also increased Celery to 3 or 4 stalks at times. Some recipes aren't open to improvising but feel free with this one to add extra or something new of what your Family likes. Very "user friendly" recipe or great just like it is! Read More

I added a can of cream style corn and a beef bouillon cube for flavoring as this came out fairly bland. On the whole it was well-liked. Prepared the chopped vegetables the evening before. Read More

I cooked mine in the crock pot while I was at work so it cooked for 9 hours which was a little too long my cabbage basically disappeared. We still enjoyed it but next time will make when it won't have to cook as long. Read More

It's in my recipe box! I only keep the ones I know I will fix again. What a great warmer upper on these cool Chicago evenings. Help me with one thing tho. What is the closest bean to "ranch style"? I've looked everywhere but no luck in my area. What would you suggest I substitute? Read More

I have made this several times and it has become one of our family favorites! Thank you for the great recipe. The only change I make is that I use a can of Rotel instead of picante - we like the taste of Rotel better. Everyone in my family from my baby all the way up to my father requests this dish. And so easy if you throw it all into the crockpot in the morning. Read More

We love this recipe. Have made it numerous times since finding it last year. It always turns out well even with substitutions. Great way to use up cabbage. I like this recipe so much better than a regular beef soup as it has a lot of flavor. We've also substituted sausage for the beef and that was great too. Read More

Ranch-style is a brand of pinto bean. It has a spicy and thick sauce. I don't know a good sub. for it but hope that helps. Read More

I made this for my husband and he loved it. He said when I first told him what was in this stew he didn't think it sounded to good. He later told me he sure was glad he didn't go with his inital thoughts of this stew. He loved it and has already put in as request for it again this weekend. Read More
