Sweet and Sour Cabbage Stuffed with Beef–Grain and Gluten Free


You all know I have a thing for Pinterest.    One of my favorite things to do on there is find new recipes to make for our family.   I’m happy to report that each one I have tried so far they have loved.   Thus, my daily search for more to try!

This Tuesday I decided to make something totally new for me!
I found this recipe and like I always do – I make them my own. 
You could always make the cabbage wraps and then place in crock-pot for 3-4 hours on low. 
Now I will share the steps I took to make this delicious meal.  (Excuse the poor quality photos I took them with my cell phone)
First I cored the cabbage heads and then boiled them for 15 minutes.   Next I turned off the heat and let them sit in the pot for another 15 minutes.  
I preheated the oven to 350 degrees.


At the same time I browned the beef.   Then drained any fat and poured it into a large mixing bowl.


Here is what I added to the 2 pounds of cooked organic grass feed beef:
  • 2 organic eggs whisked
  • 1 cup of organic tomato sauce
  • 2 TBS of grade B maple syrup
  • 2 oz of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1tsp of organic garlic powder
I stirred that up really well and with a quarter cup scoop I began filling the cabbage leaves one by one (rolling them wasn’t as hard as I thought).
You can see they were all a bit different in size. 


I placed the lid on them and set the timer for 30 minutes.  
I then removed the lid and poured on 2 – 3 TBS of olive oil and a bit more tomato sauce and cooked them for an additional 15 minutes.


This is what they looked like right out of the oven…


I baked asparagus to go with it this dish.   I put it on a cookie sheet, pour a little olive oil on it, sprinkle on my favorite spices and bake for 18 minutes.  It is my favorite way to cook asparagus.   It comes out perfect every single time.
All ready to serve.


On the top left of my plate is the extra cabbage and beef that would not fit in the casserole dish.   I chopped up the extra cabbage and put it back into the pot I cooked the beef in.   I cooked it on medium heat with butter (non GMO) for 15 minutes and it was AMAZING!

This immediately became a house favorite!  It will definitely be added into my menu rotation.
Let me know how you all like it!  Smile

Wishing you all a beautiful and blessed day!
