Ingredients

1 to 2 pounds head of green cabbage - quartered lengthwise and cored
½ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced and divided
¾ teaspoon salt
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoons olive oil
½ pound ground beef chuck
½ pound ground pork
¼ teaspoon salt and black pepper
2 (14 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with juice
⅓ cup dried cranberries
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, chopped
Serve with steamed white rice


Place cabbage in a deep 12” heavy skillet with broth, 1 garlic clove (sliced), and a rounded ¼ teaspoon of salt.


Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then cook, covered turning cabbage occasionally, until very tender, about 45 minutes.


(Add more broth or water if necessary – do not let the pan go dry).


Meanwhile cook the onion and remaining garlic in oil in a heavy medium pot over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 8 minutes.


Increase the heat to medium-high and stir in ground meats along with ½ teaspoon each of salt and pepper.


Cook, stirring and breaking up lumps with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 3 minutes.


Stir in tomatoes with their juice, cranberries, vinegar, and brown sugar and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally and breaking up the tomatoes with a spoon, until slightly thickened, about 20 minutes. Season with additional salt, if needed.


Pour sauce into the skillet with the cabbage and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes.


Serve sprinkled with parsley and accompanied by steamed rice, if desired.
