The other day a friend of mine had a recipe posted on her Facebook wall. It looked good so I decided to give it a try. Well I didn’t have this…and didn’t have that so I basically ended up with a different dish. It was so good and I don’t want to forget what I did to make it so I decided I’d write up the recipe and post it on the blog..that way I don’t forget AND you can try it too. (if you’re judging on looks, I know it doesn’t look good. Judging on taste…YUMMY especially if you’re a cabbage lover like me!)
Hubby’s in the field now harvesting so I make all sorts of things he really doesn’t like to eat…I eat them for three days and make him something else. My list of foods he doesn’t like include spaghetti, chow mein, soups and anything with cabbage. That’s one of the reason I tried this recipe.
1 1/2 to 2 pounds lean ground beef or turkey (I only used one pound)
1 tablespoon oil (I omitted this)
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small cabbage, chopped
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes (I didn’t have the diced tomatoes or the tomato sauce so I use salsa)
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt (no salt for me!)
(Not original to the recipe, I added 1 cup of cooked rice)
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground beef and onion and cook, stirring, until ground beef is no longer pink and onion is tender.
Add the garlic and continue cooking for 1 minute.
Add the chopped cabbage, tomatoes, tomato sauce, pepper, and salt. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, or until cabbage is tender.
I loved it….I especially liked the salsa in there to spice it up. I used my own homemade salsa so there is corn and peppers in there. I will definitely be making this again.
