Green Cabbage and Beef Meatballs Pinterest

Slow cooked shredded green cabbage and beef meatballs recipe, green cabbage and beef meatballs are slow cooked in a crockpot with red bell peppers and a flavorful sauce, delicious and comforting!

Over the years, I have become a great fan of cabbage, it’s quickly prepared and cooked, mixes well with other vegetables, I very much like to mix it with carrots or peppers, it makes awesome broths, plus it is good for the health.

Here I gently simmered my cabbage and peppers into a broth with a bit of tomato sauce, then I gathered the broth to make a delicious sauce and added the beef meatballs I had cooked in the meantime.

This is a delicious, flavorful and healthy main dish for weekday dinners, it can be ready in about an hour, you can also replace the meatballs by sausage or bacon, you could put all the ingredients in the crockpot at the same time and simmer away whilst you do whatever it is you have to do…

Recipe :

Ingredients:

Vegetables:

1 head green cabbage, cored, large stems removed, shredded,

2 red bell peppers, sliced

32 oz. (1 liter) of vegetable or chicken stock/broth, hot

2 tbsp. tomato sauce

Salt and pepper to taste

Beef meatballs:

18 oz. (500 g) ground beef

3 shallots, minced

1 tbsp. white wine

2 tbsp. corn flour

1 tbsp. dry herbs

1/2 tsp salt

Pepper and paprika to taste

For the sauce:

1 tbsp. corn flour

1 cup heavy cream

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tbsp. parsley or basil to decorate (optional)

Some olive oil for cooking

Cook the vegetables:

Into a crockpot, on medium high heat, heat about 3 tbsp. olive oil, add the hot broth and tomato sauce, stir, add the shredded cabbage and sliced bell peppers, simmer until the cabbage starts to wilt, stir from time to time

Check that there is always about two inches of liquid at the bottom of crockpot, add water if needed

Once the cabbage has wilted, add salt and pepper to taste and stir, continue simmering until the cabbage is cooked to your liking and set aside

Sear beef meatballs:

Whilst the cabbage is cooking, into a medium bowl, add the ground beef, white wine, shallots, spices and corn flour, mix well, if you want you can cook about a tsp of mix into microwave to taste and adjust seasoning

Into a large saucepan, heat up some olive oil on medium high heat, form the meatballs of the size that you like, here I made small ones of a heaping teaspoon each, and add them to the saucepan

Sear on all sides until cooked through and set aside

Make the sauce:

Into a small saucepan, heat some olive oil, collect all the broth from the cabbage and pour it into saucepan

Make a slurry with about 3 tbsp. of cabbage broth and 1 tbsp. corn flour and add it to the saucepan, bring to boil and stir

Add the cream, season to taste, cook for one more minute

Assembly:

Arrange meatballs onto the cabbage, pour the sauce evenly, re-heat if needed

If desired, sprinkle some parsley to decorate

Enjoy!
