Unstuffed Cabbage Skillet Dinner

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 2 tubs concentrated beef stock
  • 3 cups coarsely shredded cabbage
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup brown or white rice
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • sour cream (optional)

Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef, onion and mushrooms. Brown meat well, draining off any excess fat. Add the 2 tubs of stock gel and the water. Bring to a boil and add the rice, garlic powder and pepper; stir. Stir in the shredded cabbage. Reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook for 35-45 minutes or until rice is done and water is absorbed. Dish is done when rice is cooked and all the water is absorbed. Serve with a dollop of sour cream on top.
