  • 2 lbs DLM Natural Beef Chuck Roast or Round Steak, cut into 1 to 2-inch pieces (or, try DLM Natural Beef Stew Meat)
  • Salt and pepper, more if needed
  • 4 Tbsp DLM Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, divided
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp sweet Hungarian paprika, more if needed
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 (28-ounce) can whole plum tomatoes
  • 5 cups chicken broth, or more to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Aunt Angie's Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • ½ head cabbage, chopped
  • 1 cup parsley, chopped
  • Sour cream, if desired


Season meat generously with salt and pepper. In a Dutch oven or large soup pot, heat 3 Tbsp olive oil and brown the meat in batches to ensure a good sear. Remove meat from the pot and set aside.
Add the last tablespoon of olive oil to the pot, stir in the diced onion, and sauté until slightly softened. Stir in garlic, paprika, and crushed red pepper. Sauté for about a minute more.
Add the tomatoes and their juices, breaking them up a bit with a large spoon. Add 4 cups of the chicken broth and the balsamic vinegar. Use a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits. Add the reserved meat along with any of its accumulated juices and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, partially cover, and cook until the meat becomes tender, 30 to 40 minutes.
Add rice, cabbage, and remaining 2 cups of chicken broth. Bring back to a boil and then simmer again for about 15 to 20 minutes, until the rice is done. Stir in parsley and season with salt, pepper, and paprika if needed. Serve with a dollop of sour cream if desired.

Thank you for this recipe, chef! This was outstanding. We made it this past weekend and enjoyed it in front of a fire with some homemade bread. A perfect wintertime meal!
