How to make Southern ground beef and cabbage

Print this recipe
One-pot dishes are the best, but sometimes it can be hard to figure out how you're going to get all the veggies, starches and meat into that one pan. The good news? When you make Southern ground beef and cabbage, as in the recipe below, you can get most of those. In addition, this cabbage is so filling, you won't even miss the starch.
A lot of people think they don't like cabbage, and I always tell them to give it another chance. If you've only had cabbage in coleslaw or other dishes where it doesn't lose its crunch, you may think you don't like cabbage. It transforms entirely, however, when it's been cooked down for as little as 10 minutes. It becomes tender and soft and is one of the most delicious things to eat. If you thought you didn't like cabbage before, this recipe offers the opportunity to give it a second chance.
