Unstuffed Cabbage

Unstuffed Cabbage
From taxi78cab

Following discussion of a lasagna-like version, taxi says: "My version is strictly a weeknight, ready-in-half-an-hour variety. General directions:

Cook some rice in one pot. In another pot cook up some ground beef with some onions. Add a whole diced green peppers at the end so they don't get mushy. Toss in a can of diced/crushed/stewed/whatever tomatoes. Add some spices. Chop/shred/slice up some cabbage into bite-ish sized pieces. Add that in. When the cabbage is just slightly softened but not mushy, add the rice to the pot. Taste and adjust the spices/salt as necessary. Done. Twenty minutes on a good night. And really healthy if you use brown rice (obviously this needs longer to cook, though, so leftover is better here) and a leaner ground meat. Plus pepper+tomato+cabbage = a LOT of vitamin C!"
