Smothered Cabbage With Ham

It's that time of year where we end up with a lot of leftovers. Use leftover ham with this one pot dish with cabbage and potatoes. You can serve this alongside pork or chicken.

Cook Time: 45 mins

Servings: 8


  • 1/4 cup canola oil or avocado oil

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1 cup diced ham

  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced

  • 10 cups coarsely chopped green cabbage

  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.

  2. Add onion and cook, stirring, until starting to brown, about 3 minutes.

  3. Add ham and garlic; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

  4. Add cabbage, broth, potatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to maintain a simmer; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

  5. Remove the lid, increase heat to medium-high and continue cooking and stirring until most of the liquid has evaporated, 10 to 12 minutes.

  6. Stir in vinegar.
