Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 lb grass fed lean ground sirloin (it’s also yummy with lean chicken sausage)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 large or 1 small head of cabbage, chopped
  • 3 cups low sodium organic chicken broth or stock
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes (I used fire roasted)
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • fresh basil
  • shredded Monterrey Jack Cheese (optional topping)

Instructions

  1. Stovetop: In a large soup pan, brown beef on medium high heat. Stir in chopped onions and cook until onions are translucent and beef is cooked through. Add garlic and cook an additional minute. Drain and discard fat. Add cabbage, tomatoes, tomato sauce, broth, and dried spices and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover for 30 minutes. Simmer until cabbage is tender. Garnish with fresh basil and top with cheese, if desired! (DO IT, DO IT!)
  2. Instant Pot: Set pot to saute, then brown beef on medium high heat. Stir in chopped onions and cook until onions are translucent and beef is cooked through. Add garlic and cook an additional minute. Drain and discard fat. Add cabbage, tomatoes, tomato sauce, broth, and dried spices. Cover and lock IP. Set to manual for ten minutes. After cook time is up, do a 10 minute natural release (if you have the time), then QR. Garnish with fresh basil and top with cheese, if desired! (Again – DO IT, DO IT!)
