Otherwise know as lazy cabbage rolls 🙂
I made these a couple weeks back and the family has been asking for it again and again. The nice thing is it takes 20 minutes to put a hot steamy stick to your ribs meal on the table… perfect after a day of ice skating on the outdoor rink.
All the gratification of cabbage rolls… and 1/3 of the effort.
In a deep cast iron iron pan start by browning:
1/2 red onion diced fine
2 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 lb ground happy cow (local and organic of course)
a good glug of olive oil
Once browned add:
2 roasted red peppers sliced thin (I used jarred peppers but you could use fresh… or use tomatoes instead)
2 tbsp red pepper paste (the Italian spread)
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp paprika
splash lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
1/4 green cabbage sliced razor thin
2 carrots shredded
1 cup tomato sauce
Simmer everything on low for 20 minutes (just long enough to cook some brown rice!)
When your rice is cooked add 2 cups to the sauce and garnish with 1 handful of fresh parsley chopped fine.
serve hot to red cheeked family!
