I enjoy cabbage rolls but I'm not always a big fan of the rolling. And rolling. And rolling. When it comes to cooking sometimes I just want to utilize the chop and throw into a pan method (I get that from my Grandma Joan).
Un-done cabbage rolls are one of my go-to's now which was inspired by a food gift from our neighbor. Food gifts, are at the top of the list when it comes to the most thoughtful gifts....I think.
Un-Done Cabbage Rolls
1 medium cabbage or 1/2 of a large cabbage
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion
1-2 cloves garlic
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 tsp yellow mustard seed
1 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper
In a large pan saute onions with a little olive oil until tender.
While that's going on brown ground beef in a separate pan.
Once meat is cooked drain and set to the side.
Add minced garlic cloves, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and cabbage to the onions.
Cook on medium high heat until cabbage starts to become soften. Add meat, yellow mustard, chili powder, salt and pepper.
Continue to cook until cabbage is completely tender.
