"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..."

  1. Combine cabbage, tomatoes with juice, onion, Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper in a large pot over low heat. Bring cabbage mixture to a simmer and crumble ground beef into the pot. Cover and cook until cabbage is tender and ground beef is cooked through, about 45 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Do not cook and then drain your meat; most of the taste will leave. I use 90/10 ground beef for this recipe. Perfect!
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

As written, this is a 3-star recipe. Okay, but not that special or flavorful. I added some Worcestershire, as others recommended, and also some rice wine vinegar and paprika, which gave it more ...

Can't say anything bad about this one. It was perfect. I did add two cans of diced tomatoes. Absolutely going to be using this one again.

I couldn't bring myself to boil ground meat, so I sauteed the onions, garlic, and beef in a pan with the herbs; then added the cabbage and tomatoes, covered and cooked for 30 minutes. I served w...
