‘ey up! Cabbage bowls time!
We’re having to take a bit of a break from the blog to concentrate on an exciting personal project – but rather than leave you sitting there with a sulk on with no new recipes, we’re going to use it as an excuse to pump out some recipes with no guff. Trust me: some of the recipes coming up will leave you dripping like a St Bernard’s chin.
Can I ask a favour, though? If you’ve got someone who is doing this infernal diet alongside you, share our stuff! The buttons at the bottom will instantly share to Facebook and Twitter. Help us to help them – god knows they need it.
You can make this recipe in the Instant Pot or on the hob – if you’re using the hob, you’ll need a good non-stick casserole pot. Let’s go! This makes enough for four.
to make lazy cabbage bowls you will need
- 1 savoy cabbage, chopped roughly
- 250g beef mince
- 250g pork mince
- 1 onion, diced
- 750ml passata
- 3 tbsp cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp maple syrup (4 syns) (you could also use honey, brown sugar or even sweetener, but just make sure to check the syns)
- 2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
- 2 tsp paprika
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp mustard powder
Looking for an Instant Pot? Still on the fence? Don’t be, you’ll give yourself piles. They’re having stock problems at the moment but stop fretting – the Pressure King Pro is a decent replacement. Cheap on Amazon at the moment, too!
Oh and if you need pork or beef mince, don’t forget that you can build your own meat hamper with our Musclefood deals!
to make lazy cabbage bowls you should:
- on the Instant Pot, press the ‘saute’ button and adjust to ‘Normal’
- add a bit of oil and then the mince, and brown off until just a little bit of pink remains
- add the diced onion and stir frequently until it’s starting to go translucent
- add the rest of the ingredients except the cabbage and give a really good stir
- sit the cabbage on top (don’t stir!) and put the lid on
- cook on High pressure for 8 minutes, and use the quick release method when done
- give a good stir and serve – we had ours with rice – it was lovely!
Using a hob? Same kind of idea – cook everything off first, then leave to simmer and sweat for maybe forty minutes until everything comes together like a Roman orgy.
