Welcome to the New Year!!
As I am sure many of us are, we are trying to get back on track in the new year from all the deliciousness of the holidays. I know I ate way more then I should have, so hubby and I are trying to eat in more and eat better. So in the fridge I had half a cabbage from new years dinner and half a pound of ground beef. I wanted to do stuffed cabbage but it takes me forever to make.
SO I thought of my stovetop lasagna and found a recipe for unstuffed cabbage. Was delicious and took half the time, even made mashed potatoes while this was cooking.
What I used
-half a head of cabbage, chopped up roughly
– one can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes put through food processor to create sauce
– 8oz lean ground beef (had 93/7 in fridge)
– 1/4 cup onion chopped
-2 garlic cloves chopped
– salt and pepper to taste
-1/4 tsp cinnamon and nutmeg
-2 tbs lemon juice
I browned the ground beef, onions and garlic, slowly added the cabbage and once it was slightly wilted, I added tomato sauce, lemon, cinnamon and nutmeg and salt and pepper. Cooked for another 10 minutes or so to thicken sauce and that’s it! I served it with mashed potatoes, hubby and I loved it.
I hope you do too!!
