We’ve all heard about the amzing benefits of a cabbage soup….right? I’ve heard that its great for detoxing and other miracle properties….. Could be true since cabbage is really good for you. I, however, just like the taste.
Here’s what you will needg
1 lb hamburger
About cup of chopped celery (optional)
Before we begin. Lidl recntly opened in my town last week. I’ve been dying to go. So I made a two week meal plan and wrote out my grocery list. Mind you I didn’t need any meat because I go to the local meat market..they have great prices.
I ended up with 55 items for only 58 bucks. Mind you I had a bag full of onions and celery. But my meal plan didnt call for the celery til next week and I didn’t want it to spoil. I was initially looking for frozen chopped celery but couldn’t find any. So…I decided to do it l. I spent half an hour chopping onions and celery just to freeze them. It will save me money in the future and it didn’t even take that much of my time.
The celery in this recipe is optional. I just had some so why not use it. The more green the better right?
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
You will need to brown the beef. Half way thru I added the onion and celery so they could get nice and done before going into the casserole.
The hardest part I think was chopping up the cabbage. That is after you wash it. Always wash your veggies, fruits and the tops of your cans. Always.
While the beef is cooking chop up the cabbage and place it into your baking dish.
In a bowl, mix together the broth, sauce and tomatoes. Pour this over the cabbage.
When the beef is done…drain it. We don’t need any of that grease in our dish. Add this to the mixture and bake.
It took about 2 hours for the casserole to bake so that the cabbage was all the way done. You do not want to serve something where the cabbage isn’t easy to chew.
Funny thing is….I like cabbage but not Brussel sprouts.
