Unstuffed Cabbage

Sunday, October 13, 2013

I am always searching for those quick and easy recipes to make and this one had comfort food written all over it! I love stuffed cabbages, but they can be a little time consuming to make and this recipe was way more easier to prepare! No stuffing required! Ground beef, tomatoes and cabbage always make a wonderful combination and will be great served on a cool or cold day.

This recipe does call for 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, but I used only 1/8 tsp. A 1/2 tsp seemed a bit over powering for me. I think the 1/8 tsp left just a hint of cinnamon, which is just the way I like it. You can always leave it out if you don't care for cinnamon in your meats. Cook the ground beef and chop the cabbage the night before and you can have this recipe made in less than 30 minutes. I will definitely be making this recipe again!

Brown your lean ground beef and weigh out 25 oz cooked.

Add chopped cabbage to the 25 oz of cooked ground beef.

Then add the diced tomatoes, vinegar and water.

Next add the spices.

Stir until combined, bring to a boil, and then cook over low heat for about 30 minutes.

Divide into 5 equal portions. This is a great meal to freeze for later!
