Ground Meat and Cabbage
Low Carbohydrate Recipe
The ground meat is sauteed with onion and garlic powder the add cabbage, carrots, bouillon, fresh garlic, onion powder and salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with tomato and cheese.
1 pound extra lean ground beef (or mixture of beef and turkey)
1 small onion, diced
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 head cabbage (about 3 cups coarsely shredded)
2 tablespoons carrots, shredded (optional)
1 bouillon cube
1/2 cup water
Chopped fresh garlic to taste
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
Onion powder to taste
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 small tomato, thinly sliced
Shredded Parmesan and/or romano cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine ground meat, onion and garlic powder in a 2-quart covered oven casserole/pan with oil. Saute uncovered for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to break up meat mixture. Drain off any fat. (Optionally, this can be done in a skillet and then moved to a covered casserole at this point.)
Add cabbage and all but last two ingredients and toss well. Cover casserole and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove cover during last 15 minutes, top with sliced tomatoes and shredded cheese and return to oven for balance of baking time.
You can use 1/2 cup canned chicken broth here in place of bouillon and water if you prefer.
