Cabbage, mince and tomato one pot wonder

This is another one pot wonder. A really lean, tasty and healthy dish. Enjoy with rice, topped on a baked potato, with crusty bread or just on it’s own as a low carb meal. 

Serves 4


  • 500g shredded cabbage
  • 750g lean beef mince
  • 1 or 2 cans of chopped tomatoes (depending on how juicy you like it)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée 
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 level tsp sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Method:
    1. Add the olive oil to a thick bottomed / cast iron pot
    2. Fry the onion and garlic until softened
    3. Add the mince and brown
    4. Add the tomato purée and stir through
    5. Add the chopped tomatoes and shredded cabbage (you might need top gradually stir in the cabbage so that it’s easy to stir in)
    6. Add the Worcestershire sauce and sugar
    7. Using the tomato can, fill half the can with water and add to the pot
    8. Season to taste and stir
    9. Cook on a low heat with the lid on for at least 45 minutes to an hour, stirring occasionally. If the water level looks low, top up with a small amount so that nothing catches at the bottom of the pot
