  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • ½ of a medium cabbage chopped
  • 1 medium carrot grated or julienned
  • 3 tablespoon tomato sauce or paste
  • ½ cup Vegetable or beef stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ teaspoon paprika regular or smoked
  • 1 medium to large onion
  • 2-3 tablespoon Vegetable oil for cooking


  • Start with beef - in a medium or large skillet heat up a little bit of oil over medium heat. When the skillet is warm, add ground beef, salt, and pepper to taste and cook until golden brown. Set aside.
  • In the same skillet add onion and cook until translucent. Follow with grated carrot and cook until the carrot becomes soft.
  • Add tomato sauce/paste and veggie stock or a bouillon cube mixed in water and give it a good stir. Let the carrots and onions simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  • Follow with cabbage, add salt, pepper, and paprika. Stir well to combine all the ingredients and let simmer under a closed lid (stirring occasionally) until cabbage becomes soft.
  • Return the cooked beef, stir, garnish with fresh herbs like parsley or chives and serve while hot.
  • Enjoy!
