Some nights I just don’t feel like cooking much. Shocking - I know!
On those nights I’m really glad for stand by recipes like this one. Quick to throw together, the whole family enjoys it (I serve theirs on wholegrain buns like sloppy Joes) and I get to have yummy barbeque sauce goodness in a bowl. And nobody even notices just how many veggies are in there!
And dinner is made in no time at all with hardly any clean up! Some days I just love the simplicity of one pan meals!
1 pound ground beef or pork
1-1/2 cups finely shredded cabbage (get the Angel Hair Cabbage in the bag for even faster preparation)
1 small onion, chopped
1 celery rib, finely chopped
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
1 cup low-carb ketchup
3 tbsp. Ideal Brown Sugar Substitute *
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp. prepared mustard
1/2 tbsp. vinegar
2 tsp smoked paprika (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
Dash of liquid smoke (optional)
In a large skillet, cook the beef, cabbage, onion, celery and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar substitute, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, paprika, vinegar, liquid smoke, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until cabbage is tender.
Makes 8 servings.
The whole recipe comes to 35 g of carbs, with 5 g of fiber, so 30 g of net carbs. That’s 3.75 g of net carbs per serving. Please adjust the carb counts according to what low-carb ketchup you use!
*Seems that the Ideal brand sweetener is back in the stores. I found it at Fry’s today under the Kroger brand name! It’s in a purple pack however!Pin It
