  1. Place pot roast, onion, mint, garlic, cinnamon, allspice, and bay leaves in a large pot. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in enough water to cover the roast. Cook over medium heat until roast is tender, adding more water if needed, about 4 hours.
  2. Stir cabbage wedges into the pot. Simmer until cabbage is tender, about 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • As a variation, I will add various root vegetables. My favorites are red and white beets, and/or carrots.
  • You can also make this in a slow cooker; cook on Low, 6 to 7 hours. Add cabbage in the last 1/2 hour.
