This classic is one I cannot understand why it is good, but everyone seems to like it—especially small people. It has been the topic of conversation at many Monday pickups!

  •  1 – 1/2 cabbage – sliced by hand                  
  • 1 liter ginger ale
  • 32 oz ketchup                                           
  •  2 pounds chopped meat (any kind is good)
  • 1 small onion, chopped

 Brown meat and onion in 1/4 cup water (use a very large pot).  Drain and set aside.  Put sliced cabbage, ginger ale, and ketchup in pot and bring to a boil.  Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.  Add browned meat mixture to pot (with cabbage) cover and cook 1 1/2 hours.  Can be served with rice, mashed potatoes, or fresh bread.
