  1. Quick and easy! I'd probably add garlic and carrots, since I add those to almost anything.

    1. I added a little chili powder to mine...gave it some zing.

  2. I would add garlic for himself too. And possibly some peas. We call them 'mince messes', and they include whatever happens to be in the fridge/cupboard. Always tasty. Though it is a lot of years since I have eaten mince.

    1. Next time after it simmers I'm going to put it in a casserole dish and top it with mashed potatoes and slide it under the broiler with some cheese on top.

    2. Thus turning it into Shepherd's Pie. Or Cottage Pie, depending on where you are from.

  4. We no longer eat red meat so we would use a meat substitute. Believe me, it would not taste as good

    1. Hmmmm.....I don't know what that would taste like. Possibly with enough spices it would be okay.

  5. I wonder how Rotel would be in place of the diced tomatoes? It sounds yummy,

    1. It's a very forgiving recipe. You can change it up a number of ways.

  6. YUM! I'm on a diet, but I learned I'm not getting enough actual FOOD in my diet, so I need to find some new recipes that are healthy but have substance. I may try this one!

  7. My mouth is watering, but I can't eat tomatoes. I miss them so much. So versatile, so tasty, so healthy. Sigh.

    1. I wonder if there isn't something you could substitute for the tomatoes......

      Delete
    2. I googled it....there are some possible substitutes. Just google for tomato substitutes in cooking.

    3. Thank you, Delores. Why have I never thought to do this?

  8. Love cabbage when they are chopped.

  9. Lovely ...
    The only change I'd make is to serve with cauliflower rice as it will not raise Eddie blood sugars too high.

    All the best Jan

    1. There you go....there's always a 'work around' isn't there?

  10. hey! How 'bout that? I cook the same thing from time to time. I like to think of it as "deconstructed" stuffed cabbage when I'm too lazy to go to all the trouble that entails. I like to add marjoram to the mixture, too, for a little extra flavor.
