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!
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a heavy skillet
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.
