  • 2 Pounds Ground Beef 80/20
  • 1 Yellow Onion large
  • 4 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 - 15 Ounce Can of Tomato Sauce canned
  • 1 - 14.5 Ounce Can of Diced Tomatoes canned
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Dried Oregano
  • 2 Teaspoons Dried Basil
  • 2 Dried Bay Leaves
  • 1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 10 Ounces Cabbage shredded
  • 1 Cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese shredded, (optional, use for the topping)


  • In a large dutch oven, cook meat (2 Pounds) over medium heat, breaking it into small pieces with the back of your spoon as it cook. Cook until no longer any pink.
  • Stir in yellow onion (1) and minced garlic (4 cloves) and cook until onions are translucent - about 8 minutes.
  • Stir in tomato sauce (1-15 Ounce Can), diced tomatoes (1-14.5 Ounce Can), soy sauce (1 1/2 tablespoons), oregano (2 tablespoons), basil (2 teaspoons), bay leaves (2), seasoned salt (1 tablespoon) and black pepper (1/2 teaspoon).
  •  Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.
  • Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in shredded cabbage (10 Ounces), and let the sauce simmer for about 5 minutes (for more crunchy texture) to 10 minutes (for softer texture).
  • Remove from heat, discard bay leaves, and refrigerate, if possible, overnight.
  • If serving right away, you can sprinkle with cheese and melt in the oven for a few minutes! (I put the oven to broil and cooked for 6 minutes, until the cheese just starts to brown around the edges). Serve warm, and enjoy!


  • Meat. You can use ground turkey instead of beef, simply add 1 tablespoon of mild-tasting oil to the pan to cook it.
  • Nutritional information is based on 1 serving if you divide this recipe into 6 servings, and includes the cheese topping:
