1 lb ground beef
1/2 head of cabbage, cut into bite size pieces
1 carrot, chopped small
1 rib celery, chopped small
1 onion, chopped small
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 TB of butter, optional but really, use it
1/2 cup rice
1/2 can 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
1/2 + water
salt, pepper, bay leaf
Brown the ground beef and onions in the pressure cooker, add the carrot, celery, garlic and till the veggies start to soften. Add the salt, pepper and rice and stir in well. Add the blob of butter, adding butter to a dish that has tomatoes really does cut some of the acidity and add a little extra richness. Try it.
Add the cabbage, tomatoes and bay leaf. Stir. Add water so the liquid is about 2 inches deep in the bottom of the pressure cooker.
LOCK and cook on high pressure for 15 mins, leave 5 mins before you open the vent.
Stir, serve, eat, repeat.
This stuff freezes beautifully, it microwaves beautifully. You can easily futz with it, add more rice, more veggies, no rice, the possibilities are endless, THIS recipe is your jumping off spot.
Oh and it's delicious, did I mention the yummy warmyness? HAHAHA Make it! Enjoy it!
Brown the meat and veggies, add the blob of butter, shush it all around
Ahhhhhhh, the big reveal, so yummy.
This is my kind of one bowl, warm and delicious meal. Confession time, this is best eaten curled up on the couch with a book, a glass of wine OR on the couch with a good movie and some family nearby.
Go make this,
