This is a wonderful weeknight meal because it is put together so fast. It has a slight Mexican flavor but it is not over-powering.—Diana Filban, Cut Bank, Montana


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 small head cabbage, shredded (about 1 pound)
  • 1 can (28 ounces) Mexican diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Hot cooked rice


  1. In a Dutch oven, brown beef and onion; drain. Stir in cabbage. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until cabbage is crisp-tender. Stir in tomatoes, brown sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper. Cook 10 minutes longer, stirring occasionally. Serve over rice.
