This is one of those meals that is so simple you wonder how it tastes so good. I mean, there is only a few straightforward ingredients and yet, it turns into this wonderful, flavorful combination.
The recipe makes a fairly large amount so you can either serve your family OR you can break it up and freeze some of it for later.
I figured out the nutritional info (using Fitday) by counting this as 4 servings.
Per serving: calories - 315, fat - 13.4, carbs - 24.6, and protein - 26.4.
A quarter of this is a pretty big serving.
Oh, yeah, I wanted to point out the bowl in the photos. My niece, Kenzie, gave it to me for Christmas. She did the design herself. She bought an inexpensive white bowl, drew on it with a permanent marker, then baked it to set the ink.
Pretty cool, right? I love it!
Fried Cabbage and Ground Beef
1 lb extra lean ground beef
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 small onion, diced
1 large carrot, shredded
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 head cabbage, shredded
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp Worcestershire
2 Tbsp sweet chili sauce
1/4 tsp garlic salt
salt & pepper
In a large sauce pan, cook beef until no longer pink. Remove to a bowl, set aside.
In the same large pan; add olive oil to pan. Add in onion, carrot, garlic. Cook and stir until onions have started to soften. Add cabbage, water, Worcestershire, sweet chili sauce, garlic salt, salt & pepper. Cover and cook until water is gone and cabbage is soft, about 10 - 15 minutes. (If you need to add more water and cook longer then do so - you want the cabbage to be thoroughly cooked.)
Stir the cooked ground beef back into the cabbage and let cook until heated through.
NOTE - As you may be able to tell from the photos, I did not shred my cabbage but rather chopped it. I didn't have our food processor and didn't feel like shredding the whole head by hand. Chopping it works just as well as shredding as long as you make sure you chop it into fairly small bits.
In case you need another reason to give this a try - it is full of fibre, protein, Vit A, Vit B6, Vit B12, Vit C, Zinc, and a lot of other healthy stuff.
You can easily change this up to suit your tastes too. Different veggies, different spices - I'm finding it quite interesting and fun to play around with different veggie and spice combinations to find my favorites.
