Hearty and comforting, yet easy on the waistline and pocketbook; Unstuffed Cabbage is sure to be a hit with the whole family, and is ideal for meal prep as it only gets better by the day!


  • 2 lbs. Ground Beef

  • 1 Onion, diced

  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced

  • 1 tbsp. Italian Seasoning

  • Red Pepper Flakes, to taste (optional)

  • 1 14oz. can Diced Tomatoes

  • 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce

  • 1/3 cup Broth or Water

  • 1 (small) Head of Cabbage, chopped

  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

  • 1 cup Italian Parsley, chopped

In a large Dutch oven or pot, cook the ground beef (broken into crumbles) over medium-high heat until almost cooked through. Add onions, garlic, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes; cook until onions are soft and meat is browned.  Add diced tomatoes (with juices), tomato sauce and broth; mix until combined.  Add cabbage and stir to coat.  Lower heat to medium and cook until cabbage has softened, stirring occasionally, about 15 - 25 minutes.  Stir in parsley, reserving some for garnish. 


Serve over egg noodles, rice or cauliflower rice, and top with remaining parsley.  Enjoy with someone you love!
