  • Servings: 8


1 lb Ham, cubed (½"
1 lb Portuguese Sausage, cubed (½"

Place ingredients in the order above in a 5- to 6-quart crock pot. Dilute tomato paste with some of the water. Pour tomato paste mixture over all ingredients, using enough water so that it barely covers the cabbage. Cook on high for 5 to 6 hours. Season to taste before serving.
