Wholesome Inexpensive Scrumptious Easy
I find that the less of these criteria a recipe fits, the less often I make it, and vice versa. The ones that fit them all go into the regular rotation. But my regular rotation is in need of new meat (and veggies).
Everyone has their own idea of what constitutes wholesome, inexpensive, scrumptious, and easy, so I won’t bother trying to define them. If you have any recipes that are all of these things to you, please share.
Here’s one that gets raves from my cabbage-hating kids and mother. (At fifty cents a pound how could anyone hate cabbage? ) I came up with it while trying and failing to make Golabki (Stuffed Cabbage Rolls). All the flavor, none of the fuss.
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 head cabbage, chopped
1/2 an onion, chopped
1/2 a green pepper, chopped
1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
28oz can tomato sauce (not pasta sauce)
1 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp marjoram
1 tsp sugar
In a big pot, brown the ground beef. When it’s nearly done, add the veggies and cook til the meat is done and the veggies are tender. Stir in the tomato sauce, rice and seasonings. Dump into a sprayed casserole and bake @350F til bubbly ~20 mins.
