This is a recipe I found on the net one day. When I was a kid I HATED it when my mum made cabbage rolls. Now I'm a Mum, cabbage is my hero
1 1/2 to 2 pounds lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cabbage, cored and chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can tomato juice - NOTE: I use V8 juice 'cause it's tastier
1 tablespoon cider vinegar or wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt
Tablespoon or so of brown sugar
Cook your beef and onion, drain the fat off. Add the minced garlic and let it cook for a minute or so.
Add your cabbage, tomatoes, tomato sauce, vinegar, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, and salt. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, or until cabbage is tender.
Towards the end I taste and add more pepper, salt or whatever I need. I also like to add about a tablespoon of brown sugar to cut the vinegar a bit and make it all taste a bit richer. You can omit this if you prefer.
I make my rice whilst this is cooking and then stir it through the cabbage mix before serving. I usually like to use brown rice but with this I like white better. Again, it's preference, you can use what you have to hand.
It's healthy and delicious and I get clean plates all around, every time. It's also nice and cheap to make, which is ever a bonus when you're me!
If you try it I hope you enjoy
