Ground Beef

1 lb ground beef
1 very small onion, chopped (I was told red onions have lowest carbs)
1 cup finely shredded carrots (about 2 carrots)
3 cups finely shredded cabbage (about 1/2 head)
1 tsp salt
16 oz spaghetti sauce (Ragu Rubsto is among the lowest in carbs-check
1 tbsp worcestshire sauce
1/2 cup shred. cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef and onion, drain._ In 2-qt. casserole dish layer carrots
and half the cabbage._ Sprinkle with salt pepper._ Add meat mixture
press down._ Add remaining cabbage._ To spaghetti sauce add worcestershire

Pour over top of casserole._ Cover._ Bake at 350 for 55 minutes._ Add cheese
on top._ Bake uncovered 5 minutes.

If every carb counts for you, adjust the recipe to fit your WOL._ You can do this by using less onion and less spaghetti sauce.

Ground Meat and Cabbage

(serves 6)

1 pound extra-lean ground beef, turkey or chicken (turkey and chicken
require some oil in the pan to brown)

3-5 carrots, shredded (optional)

Optional:_ May be covered with thinly sliced tomatoes and shredded or sliced
cheese in last 15 minutes of baking for a topping.

Combine the ground meat, onion and garlic powder in a 2 qt. covered oven
casserole/pan. Saute uncovered for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally
to break up the meat mixture. Drain off any fat.__ Add the cabbage and
remaining ingredieints; toss well. Cover the casserole and bake at 350 for 1
hour._ If desired, remove cover during last 15 minutes, top with sliced
tomatoes and shredded or sliced cheese and return to oven for balance of
baking time.
