Recipe of the Week

I know I'm way behind on posting recipes, but I will try to get back on track with posting a new recipe each week for you. This week's recipe is a family favorite. I'm not sure where the name originated, perhaps the original recipe was made with pork rather than beef.


PIG SANDWICHES

1-1/2 lbs. ground chuck
3 cups coarsely chopped white cabbage
2-1/4 cups ketchup

Crumble ground chuck in a skillet and cook until no longer pink; drain off any grease. Add coarsely chopped cabbage and the ketchup and stir well. Cover and cook over medium heat stirring frequently until cabbage is tender. Remove from heat and spoon over hamburger buns. This makes about 8 servings.

Note: I cook this recipe in an iron skillet. Cooking acidic foods (tomatoes/ketchup) in an iron skillet releases iron from the skillet and is an easy way to add iron to your diet.

Sounds good, Debbie! Just wanted to stop by and see how you were doing. Looks like you're on the brink o' spring there in Arkansas... we still have a few weeks to go (winter loves its last hurrahs up north!) but the birds are chirping away. Hopefully they know something I don't. :) Take care! -Jenn
