Here’s another thing I cooked while I was house sitting. It was years ago when I came across this recipe and I’m not sure of the source for it or if it even is the same as the original. I do know that it’s an economical meal. And it’s easy to make and tasty too.
It was nice to have this recipe in my head when I was checking the refrigerator for ingredients while away from home. And the timing of making this dish was perfect as the owners came back the next morning and were available to help eat it for dinner the next day.
Here’s what happens.
Start with a cabbage and an onion.
Slice the cabbage.
Slice the onion too.
Put the cabbage and onions in the largest fry pan you have and add the Italian seasoning.
Pour the chopped tomatoes over.
Get the vegetables and seasonings cooking.
A pound of ground round.
Add the beef and cover the fry pan.
Ground Beef and Cabbage.
Ground Beef and Cabbage
1 large head cabbage, quartered and sliced
1 onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 – 28 oz. can of tomatoes, chopped, plus all the juice
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 pound lean ground beef
Place sliced cabbage and onions, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and tomatoes in a large pot or frying pan on low heat. Toss to mix. When the mixture starts to cook and the cabbage is wilting, crumble the ground beef over. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, on low heat for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the ground beef is cooked. Serve it!
This dish is even better the second day which is a good thing. There’s a lot of it.
