Good Eating Monday: Unstuffed Cabbage

I just read bad news for Cadbury Creme Egg lovers! 
The Kraft Corp, which is the manufacturer, is changing the chocolate coating recipe from real milk chocolate with dairy in it to a cheaper "standard cocoa chocolate mix" that has no real dairy.
 They are also changing the 3-egg packaging to just 2 eggs.
You can read the whole article here.
If you love Cadbury Eggs, perhaps an email/letter writing campaign might be in order?

Today's Good Eating recipe is a great tummy-warming one-pot winter meal called, "Unstuffed Cabbage."
Simple ingredients you can have ready to eat in less then 30 minutes! Serve it up with some cornbread or garlic bread and you have a feast for a king!

Unstuffed Cabbage
1 lb of lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 of a medium head of cabbage (about 1 1/2 lbs) cored, quartered & cut into inch wide strips
1 can (28oz) crushed or diced tomatoes (organic, fire-roasted or regular)
1 Tablespoon packed light brown sugar
1 Tablespoon distilled white vinegar or apple cidar vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste

*Cook beef & onions in a 4 - 5 quart dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring with a fork to break up chunks, 5 minutes or until beef is lightly browned. Drain off fat, if any.

*Stir in cabbage strips, cover & cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cabbage wilts.

*Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, then simmer 8 to 10 minutes, stirring 2 or 3 times, until cabbage is tender.

*Serves 4. Approximately 270 calories per serving.
I haven't made this in a while, but it sounds and looks so good, I think I should make it a meal plan next week before winter is gone!
