1 pound ground beef I use 90% lean

1 onion finely diced

2 teaspoons minced garlic

4 cups coarsely chopped green cabbage

2 carrots peeled, quartered and sliced

4 cups beef broth

3 8 ounce cans tomato sauce

1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice

1 bay leaf

3 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons parsley

INSTRUCTIONS:

Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add the ground beef and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook, breaking up the meat with a spatula, until beef is browned, approximately 4-5 minutes. Add the onion and garlic cook for 2-3 minutes.

Add the cabbage, carrots, beef broth, tomato sauce, rice, bay leaf and brown sugar to the pot. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Bring to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes or until rice is tender. Remove bay leaf and discard.

Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

Not a fan of ground beef? Try ground turkey instead!

You can substitute brown rice for white rice, but that will require about 20 more minutes of cook time.
