Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls

I have never tried stuffed cabbage rolls out of my kitchen.  It's hard to get the husband and kids on board to eat lettuce, let alone cabbage. One year I was so excited about growing cabbage in the garden,  but I was the only one who would eat it. I tried a new recipe last night, Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls, it is super easy, fast, and very filling. It's a great recipe to try summer time, and enjoy the rest of your evening with the kids.

I cut up a small onion from our garden, sauteed in the pan until transparent.  I added one pound of hamburger with simple seasonings, sea salt, pepper, and garlic salt.

Since I was making this recipe for my lunches at work, and knew one pound of hamburger would make four servings for me, I chopped up 16 ounces of cabbage to add to my hamburger mixture after it was browned.

I added the chopped cabbage to my browned hamburger.  I also added about 1/2 cup of water.  Cover and let the vapors help cook the cabbage, and stir occasionally.

 The cabbage is starting to cook down. Keep stirring occasionally. I added tomato paste mixed with water, this gave a little more flavor to this simple dish.  Add some sea salt and pepper to season.

Dinner was served for me, and three other helpings were now ready for my other meals for work.  I think this meal is something the whole family will like! I divided my meals into separate tupperware, and I am taking it to work with me!
