Cabbage Beef Skillet

Since starting the autoimmune protocol, I have had to become more organized in the kitchen and grocery planning. If I don’t have meals and snacks plans I would be way too tempted to cheat.

However, because my food choices are limited, cooking time has cut down a bit. And while this dish has become a regular, it is so easy to change up!

Another thing I love about this, is that it is great at stretching out a pound of grass fed meat. Grass fed meat isn’t cheap, but only a pound per meal makes it doable for our family.

Cabbage is usually pretty affordable per pound and  fills out and stretches this meal. My kids are not the biggest cabbage fans, but when it is sauteed with the other veggies and beef, they hardly notice the flavor.

The key is to brown the onions and garlic in grease to make them sweet. Shredded carrots also add a sweetness to the dish.

While sea salt and pepper are my favorites, using bacon grease to rely on the flavor, you could easily fry in a plain flavored oil and add ginger and coconut aminos to give it an Asian flavor.

Adding different veggies will also give it a new flavor. So easy and fast!

If you are doing the Trim Healthy Mama plan, keep the carrots to a minimum and this is an S meal.
