 Quickie Ham and Cabbage Dinner: A Gluten-Free Energy Booster

(This 20-minute recipe serves two hungry adults and can be easily expanded to serve more.)


  • 2 Tablespoons of Cooking Oil *
  • 1 Pound of Fress Cabbage, sliced no more than 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 Pound slice of Spiral Cut (Center) Ham Steak (or 1×1 chunks will do) *
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion sliced about 1/4 inch
  • 2 Tablespoons of Butter or Margarine *
  • 3 Tablespoons of White Vinegar *
  • 3 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
  • Need Salt, Pepper and Garlic shakers for seasoning



  1. Heat a 10-to-12-inch iron skillet on medium.
  2. Add the oil.
  3. As the oil heats up, add the Ham slice and cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Turn the Ham over and lower the heat to about a 1/4, or 2 on a scale of 10.
  5. Add the sliced Onion.
  6. Add the Cabbage.
  7. Season with Salt, Pepper and Garlic Salt.
  8. Mix together the Vinegar, Sugar and Margarine/Butter and pour it over the cabbage surrounding the ham.
  9. Cover and let simmer for about 5 minutes.
  10. Add the carrots directly into the sauce so they will cook.
  11. Turn over the Ham making sure that all of the cabbage has been coated with the sauce in the pan.  In other words, at this point, the Ham Steak can be placed on top of the cabbage.
  12. Cover and cook for another 5 minutes.
  13. Serve on place with either ham diced and mixed in with the cabbage mixture or with the ham steak on a plate topped with the cabbage mixture.


* Be sure to use Gluten-Free versions of these ingredients.
