Here's another "warm comfort food" recipe I've tweaked for Medifast purposes:.

Cabbage Patch Stew / Soup.

(One Serving).

5 ounces browned ground beef (Lean).

2 slices onion, chopped.

Cup finely chopped cabbage.

Cup diced tomatoes.

1/2 tsp. garlic, 1 cup water (or more), 1/2 tsp. chili powder..

Brown beef, onion, garlic. Add water and cabbage, simmer a few minutes. Add tomatoes, chili powder, and salt/pepper to taste. Simmer at least 15 more minutes.

225 calories 13 carbs..

On Sunday afternoons, I usually brown 3 pounds of beef at a time with salt/pepper/ garlic - then measure and freeze it in 5 ounce portions using Freezer bags. When I want taco salad, soup, etc. I just have to pull out a bag and add the other ingredients - the meal can be ready in 20 minutes. I do the same thing when I open a can of diced tomatoes and only use 3/4 cup - I freeze the rest in a freezer baggie and it works fine..

(can you tell my mom was a home-ec teacher?)..

That sounds yummy. I love cabbage. I also think the freezing of the pre-cooked, single-serving beef mixture is a great idea. Thanks for the tip!..

Excellent sounding recipe. I will definitely try this one soon. I just love homemade soups and it's getting cold here!.

I never thought of freezing pre-browned ground beef portions and will have to try that. I also freeze canned tomato portionssometimes in 1/2 c. portions and sometimes in an ice cube tray (2 T./1 oz. per "cube") and then put the frozen cubes in a baggie and use a cube to jazz up the minestrone soup or whatever..

Thanks for the great recipe and tips!..

...and did I mention that in my ultimate laziness (hey, I like to cook, not do the prep work!) I buy the angel hair coleslaw package in the bagged salad section (the package that has only cabbage, no carrots, etc.) and use that for my chopped cabbage in stir frys and Cabbage Patch Stew?..

Great ideas Momma! I am makig some as soon as I post this Thank You! I don't think you are lazy either, rather efficient. (I buy the same thing for stir fry). I also use the broccoli slaw for a variation - I pick out the carrots...

You guys are awesome!! Thanks for the tip. When it gets below 60, I want to put the heat on or get a blanket. My husband and everyone laughs at me b/c I am always cold. (grew up & live in Texas).

So you are right on time with your recipe!!!.

This sounds great. Another great thing with a veggie I don't cook with much but would like to, cabbage. And wow, so many Texas people. Everyone should get together for a Medifast party there...

Comment #9

I imagine ground turkey works too? As long as it's lean...I know some of them tend to be higher in fat..
