Cabbage with meat is a famous dish throughout Serbia.

Therefore, there are certainly many recipes for “sweet” cabbage and each region, we believe, adds its own “exotic” … this time we made it with beef from the Vojvodina region.

This is one of the dishes that is passed down from generation to generation … grandmothers, mothers, aunts … with or without meat …

Only fresh cabbage should not be left out 🙂

When it is the season of cabbage, this dish can be a real treat! For this recipe, we used a cabbage from the Vojvodina plain.

You can cook this meal with meat as you wish … also the vegetarian version is perfectly delicious!

You can make this fabulous dish in your Slow cooker or Multi cooker.

Try it and we are sure, everyone will be happy to eat it!
