How to Shred the Cabbage
Cut head of cored cabbage in half. Place one wedge, cut side down, on cutting board. Cut cabbage across the wedge into thin slices, then separate slices into shreds.
Although not traditional, add 3 WYLER'S Beef Bouillon Cubes to the browned meat in Dutch oven along with the water for extra flavor.
