My husband loved this and I was surprised at how flavorful it was without broth. The cabbage and spices really make it nice with the ham. I did not add greens the first time but am adding some to the batch I'm making now. I agree with one reviewer though you need MUCH more than just 1 cup of water...I just add enough to make sure it's all covered. A keeper in this house! Read More

has a good flavor but with all the other ingrecients found that 1c. water was not enough liquid for the end results. You need more like 2-3 cups of liquid Read More

We thought it was going to be bland turned out we wrong. It is not spicy but very very tasty. We really enjoyed it. Serve with a Rye bread for a filling meal. The ham I used was Black Forest-organic. The ham is a big part of this dish. Get the best quality ham you can you won't regret it. The salt I added was 1/2 tsp. and ground up a bunch of black pepper. It wasn't salty which I thought it was going to be. All around great recipe-Thanks Read More

This is really delicious. All those healthy vegetables and a perfect spice combination result in a very satisfying stew that tastes even better the next day. I probably shouldn't have used red cabbage however because the entire meal turned an unappetizing shade of purple! My mistake. It's what I had in the fridge but I'll stick with green cabbage next time: ) Read More

I made this dish last night and absolutely loved it. I had some left over ham carrots and celery and did a search found this and sounded yummy...got the rest of the ingedients and turned out just wonderfully. I highly recommend this on a cold chilly night. Good job...thanks so much! Mufffie Read More

We finally tried this last night and we loved it! I didn't realize that I didn't have carraway seed until I started making it. To add flavor I put some ground clove in it which I loved but was a bit much for my husband. I'd try less next time. I also took the advise of many and added more liquid & chicken broth (I love Mrs.Knorr's powdered chicken broth seasoning). Will definitely be making this again! UPDATE we made this again with the carraway seed and no clove - it was so delicious - one of our favorite recipes:) Read More

A quick flavorful and filling meal. Snowed in one afternoon I looked to All Recipes to find a dish for the ingredients I had on hand. We were quite happy with this dish I had to substitute a sweet potato for white and used baby spinach for the greens. We will be making this again and again. Read More

Very flavorful. The ham cabbage and caraway reminded me of a corned beef flavor. My husband admitted it wasn't appealing to look at. Maybe it would be more appealing if the cabbage and onions were chopped into larger pieces. Read More
