whole turkey ham
red potatoes, cubed
cabbage, cut into 6 wedges
low-sodium chicken broth, as needed
Talk about comfort foods! This was my favorite when I was a kid. The only change I would make is to use a "real" ham. Also, I have never tried a slow cooker for this...but am going to give it a shot. Thanks!
This dish was bland but with added seasonings was ok. We did not care for the cabbage, which tasted "off". I put in 4 cups of broth (the recipe calls for 2c.) and it still wasn't enough to cover all like it tells you to. So, ingredients/instructions are off there. I will probably not make this again.
Made this yesterday and I used a real ham but other than that didn't change a thing and it was perfect. Reminds me of my grandmothers cooking.
I couldn't actually find a 1-lb turkey ham, so I used the 2-lb one... and I'm glad I did. We ate it all and it was fantastic! The 'soup' and veggies that we didn't finish with the first meal, we added some corned beef to a couple of days later to make an improvised corned beef and cabbage.
I would use turkey sausage for this. Yum.
The most important thing about this recipe is to remember using a turkey ham is different then using a regular ham. I have tried boiled dinner in a slow cooker with a regular ham and it did not work out as well for me as the reviewer "Alilaw" who seems to of had great results. This is a recipe even I can't mess up (too much) we'll see next time. I will make it again.
I used regular ham and I honestly thought the flavor was kind of cooked out of it. I also added some polish kielbasa and it was great! Next time I will skip the ham and only use kielbasa. I also used pearl onions but I think regular would have been just as good if not better.
I grew up on this! My mother and grandmother made it quite often, especially during the colder months. The only differences were that they either used left-over baked ham or a good canned ham, like Hormel's Black Label. I actually like the texture of the canned ham better than the "real ham". It seems to boil well. Also they just used russet or Idaho potatoes, peeled and chopped. When I make it now I use a good chicken stock and sometimes substitute cauliflower or parsnips for the cabbage. To serve it, use a slotted spoon to spoon it onto the plate, and (this is a must in my opinion) slap a couple pads of butter on there, add salt and pepper. It's even great with sour cream! Thanks for posting this Shez. It brings back memories!
