I have such a small kitchen and make such a big mess when I cook, I love the nights when the slow cooker or cast iron skillet does the work for me. Now that autumn is here, the one pot meals are so easy to make, especially when you can throw a bunch of veggies and a chunk of meat in the slow cooker and come home eight hours later to a house that smells amazing and a dinner that satisfies your soul.
This grass-fed beef and cabbage one pot meal is quick, last minute type at our house. In between school and evening soccer practice, or before a night of teaching, it’s simple and one that allows me to prep the school lunches for the next day simultaneously. As much as I hate the Kill-Two-Birds-With-One-Stone saying, my kitchen time had better be worth it!
Grass-Fed Beef and Cabbage One Pot Meal
- 1-2 Tbsp lard or olive oil
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 3/4 head cabbage chopped
- 1 pound grass-fed beef
- Bring cast iron skillet to medium high heat with lard/olive oil.
- When warm, add chopped onions. Saute until soft, adding more lard/oil as needed.
- When soft, add in minced garlic, give it a quick stir, then remove onions and garlic to a plate.
- Place the grass-fed beef in the skillet, brown.
- Once browned, slowly add a handful of chopped cabbage at a time to the beef, stirring occasionally. Do this until all cabbage is added and beginning to wilt.
- Add the onion/garlic mix and stir until warmed through and cabbage is soft.
- Serve with fresh green salad.
