Cabbage and Potatoes in Sauce

In this recipe you saute cabbage and potatoes
in bacon fat and let simmer in a tomato sauce
to create a comforting and tasty side dish.
If you add in some browned ground beef this
would resemble in taste Polish stuffed cabbage.

2 tablespoons bacon fat
1/4 head green cabbage
2 medium sized potatoes
1 (26 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 cup water
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Melt first 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat
in a medium sauce pan on medium low heat.
While bacon is melting chop cabbage into
serving size pieces and then add to pan.
Let brown some and stir to move around.
When just starting to brown and wilt
remove cabbage to a bowl and set aside.
Add in the second tablespoon of bacon
fat in pan to melt and cut potatoes into
serving size pieces, then add into pan.
Let the potatoes brown a little and turn
them over to brown a minute on both sides.
Open can of crushed tomatoes and pour on
top of potatoes being careful because the
crushed tomato sauce will splatter some.
Pour in the water and season with pepper.
Lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes or so.
Now add in the partially cooked cabbage,
cover pan and cook until heated through for
about another 10 minutes or until tender.
