We have decided to start a blog to share our recipes and to also keep them in a place we can easily access them. We hope you enjoy them and the little tid bits of our lives that we throw in. Most recipes will be based on primal principles although a few non-primal baked goods may slip in :)

Un-stuffed cabbage

This was a random selection out of PB Quick and Easy Meals cookbook.  We both like stuffed cabbage, so why not give this a try?!  The great thing about this recipe is that the ingredients are easy to round up and it doesn't take long to make.  And there's plenty of leftovers for lunch!

1 small onion finely chopped
2 large turnips, peeled then grated (a head of grated cauliflower can be used instead. We'll have to try that next time)
1 pound ground meat (the recipe called for 1/2# pork and 1/2# bison or beef. We used 1# of pork)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbl dried parsley
1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes (the recipe didn't say whether or not to drain this before adding, we didn't, and it was probably a mistake)
1 head green cabbage

In a deep pot over medium-high heat, saute onion and turnip for a few minutes, then cover with a lid and cook for 3 minutes to steam turnip.

Add ground meat and seasonings.  Saute for 6-8 minutes, then add tomatoes. Simmer rapidly for 10 min, stirring occasionally.

With the meat simmering, cut the cabbage into fourths, removing the inner core. Separate the leaves slightly, then microwave covered for 5 minutes (we did it longer until the leaves were more tender. on the 2nd round we put butter on the leaves).  Season with butter and salt.

This was really good and is definitely on the repeat list!!
