Low carb recipe for Unstuffed Cabbage which belongs to the Beef recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pounds (680 g) ground round or other very lean ground beef
  2. 1 medium onion, chopped
  3. 1 teaspoon minced garlic or 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  4. head cabbage, coarsely chopped
  5. 1 can (8 ounces, or 225 g) tomato sauce
  6. 2 tablespoons (30 ml) lemon juice
  7. teaspoon pepper
  8. teaspoon ground nutmeg
  9. teaspoon ground cinnamon
  10. 1 teaspoon salt

Cooking Instructions

Start the ground beef cooking in a heavy skillet over high heat; spread it out to cover the bottom of the pan so it cooks quicker.

While the ground beef is browning, chop the onion and crush the garlic.

Plunk them in the pan with the ground beef and stir it up using a spatula to turn it over and break it up so that it cooks evenly.

Cover the pan and let it continue cooking.

Meanwhile, chop the cabbage coarsely.

Stir this into the beef mixture a bit at a time it will come close to overwhelming your skillet, unless yours is bigger than mine.

Again, take care to turn everything over to keep it cooking evenly.

Re-cover the pan.

Continue to stir the meat mixture to keep it cooking evenly, covering in between stirrings.

When the cabbage is starting to wilt, stir in the tomato sauce, lemon juice, pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt.

Re-cover, let the whole thing simmer for 5 minutes, and then serve.
