I love making homemade meals for my family, but in this busy season of life, I also need to keep things simple. This recipe was born from needing to get something warm, healthy, and filling on the table quickly and from a beautiful chinese cabbage that a friend harvested from his winter garden before a big freeze and generously gifted us.
I have made these brothy beef and cabbage bowls with chinese cabbage and regular green cabbage and it is delicious either way. This is so easy because I literally put everything in my dutch oven and cook on the stovetop until meat is browned and cabbage is tender. Easy...one pot meal and so yummy!
You can make this more brothy by adding some broth or water or less brothy by not adding any extra liquid. In our current freezing cold weather, I vote for warm, extra brothy bowls. (I did not add extra broth to the beef and cabbage bowls pictured.)
Delicious, hearty, healthy, and so easy to make! Enjoy these warming Asian inspired brothy beef and cabbage bowls.
