This hearty beef and vegetable stew is a filling meal on a cold evening. Serve with whole wheat pita bread.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 pounds beef, cubed
  • 1 head cabbage
  • 2 1/2 carrots (can use 2 or 3)
  • 3 1/2 tomatoes, large
  • 3 1/2 potatoes, large
  • 2 medium onions
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced (or more)
  • 2 green peppers
  • 1/2 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon vinegar
  • salt and pepper (to taste, optional)

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Dice all the vegetables.
  3. Combine with the meat and seasonings in a large pot.
