Default Recession Proof Cabbage Soup

Kinda, sorta, hey it's what we came up with, and it is cheap to make! LOL!:

Ingredients:
1lb ground beef
1 small head of cabbage or 1/2 large head (We used green cabbage)
16oz tomato sauce (we used 2 8oz cans)
Salt and pepper to taste
1tsp sugar
2tbsp paprika
1 small onion diced
1 cup water

Directions:

Brown ground beef in large pot, drain off some of the fat but not all. Add tomato sauce, water, and onion. Shred and add cabbage, then add the remaining ingredients. Simmer for about an hour, low heat, stirring often. As it cooks the cabbage will release its water and thin it out. If, after an hour of simmering it is thicker than you want, just add some more water.
If you prefer it thicker (like we do, slightly thicker than spaghetti sauce), you can serve over rice or egg noodles.

Enjoy!

Cabbage soup will help you lose weight. There is even a cabbage soup diet.

That reminds me of a dish I had once where cabbage and a ground meat sauce are baked together.

It is really good. I make it without the meat...just to save on the calories. Bet it's wonderful with the beef.
