Mom's Cabbage

We never had a name for this dish.  Mom made it all the time and we called it "that cabbage stuff that Mom makes".  Every time I wanted to make this I had to call her and say "tell me again how to made the cabbage stuff".  One day she wrote it down and mailed it to me, I still have it.  Mom's not here any longer so I'm very thankful to have some of her recipes.

This will serve 4, if I'm not there.  Normally I double the amounts because it is even better left over.  Don't stand and measure everything.  If it looks right it probably is.  Enjoy!

print recipe

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a heavy skillet
Add:
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cups shredded or coarse chopped cabbage
1/2 cup green peppers
1 cup diced tomatoes, fresh or canned
3/4 teaspoon salt (better yet, House Seasoning)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup chopped onion

Cover and cook over medium-low heat about 10-12 minutes.  Do not overcook.
When this is finished add another tablespoon butter, just because I said so.
