Peasant's Offering

Another recipe from my favorite cookbook, The Best of Mennonite Fellowship Meals.

Peasant's Offering

  • 2 T cooking oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef (or turkey)
  • 1 medium head cabbage, grated
  • 2-1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 5-6 large potatoes
  • 1 cup milk or less
  • 1 T butter
  • Chopped parsley or chives
  1. Heat cooking oil in very large skillet. Add onion and saute lightly. Add ground beef and stir to keep meat loose and fine. cook just until pink disappears.
  2. Gradually add grated cabbage, stirring until all cabbage is well cooked. Add seasonings adjusting to taste. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in sour cream. Spoon into rectangular baking dish (13X9) and spread evenly over bottom. Keep hot in oven.
  4. Dice and cook potatoes. Mash with milk and butter until desired consistency. Layer mashed potatoes over cabbage mixture.
  5. Garnish with chopped parsley or chives and serve.

This is always really popular at potlucks. I usually spoon the meat and cabbage mixture into my crockpot, layer the mashed potatoes on top, and turn it on low to keep it warm. If I'm fixing this at home, I usually just leave the meat and cabbage mixture in the skillet and put that in the oven to keep it warm. Then layer the mashed potatoes on top and serve. I usually completely forget about the parsley or chives, but I figure they're more for looks than anything - and no one seems to care.



Wonderful, hearty recipe.


I just added your blog site to my blogroll, I pray you would give some thought to doing the same.


This is really good!! I like the way you cut the cabbage into thin strips that make it seem like noodles rather than grating it. I have always hated cooked cabbage, but i really like this dish!
