“My mother was a country cook, plain and simple. But as I have traveled and worked and experienced foods from around the world, I look back and realize that many of the dishes she prepared, while simple, were perfect for that moment. Sometimes we have to put emotion and love in a dish to make it extra-special. The dish I am going to give you today is one like that. Simple and easy, yet full of love and goodness. My mother used to serve this with corn on the cob and cornbread. Very inexpensive and very good as well. Enjoy an Ozark memory...”

When I told my Hubby we were having "Ground Beef & Cabbage" for dinner he looked at me like I was crazy. To our surprise, not only did HE like it, so did our very picky kids! I changed very little, which was to add Garlic to the cabbage mixture and used 2 cans of tomatoes as suggested by other users. I think if you were only to use a 1/2 head of cabbage, 1 can of tomatoes would be enough. Next time, I'm planning on making this w/ all the ingredients listed, garlic, 2 cans Italian diced tomatoes and 1/2 lb Italian Sausage. This is a super-easy, budget-friendly, hearty meal for your family and it tastes great to boot! Don't forget a pinch of red pepper flake & some TX toast on the side! Yum! Thanks for sharing!



Simple yet it offers the dynamic of "comfort" food without too much extra comfort if you know what I mean. Instead of italian seasoning I substituted one tsp of cumin and 1 tsp paprika for that extra kick, and I added fresh tomatoes towards the last 10 minutes of cooking. Also added worcestershire sauce to the meat instead of salt. Eating it right now on top of a bed of rice (sometimes I need my carbs). Thanks for the awesome idea!



I loved this recipe! I was sort of leary about it initially but it will go into my rotation as one of my favs! Not only is it great for someone like me that is watching my weight and trying to eat healthy but it's delicious! My only regret is not making some cornbread to go along with it. I absolutely hate cooking but this recipe is so simple. I just threw all of the ingredients in a large pot, stirred it a few times and that's it. *I took someone else's suggestion and added a can of stewed tomatoes along with italian diced tomatoes. I also used ground turkey instead of ground beef and I added a touch of sugar and onion powder to add to the taste.
