Un-Stuffed Cabbage Bowls-Instant Pot

Again, another Instant Pot recipe, but this time from Skinnytaste.  What is great about their site is that they share Weight Watcher points, and nutrition values.  I have included it in my post today.

Quick and easy stuffed cabbage – without all the work!

  • black pepper, to taste
  • 8 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian paprika
  • 1 cup less sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons raisins (used currants)

DIRECTIONS:

INSTANT POT:  Press the saute button on the Instant Pot. Spray with oil then add the beef and salt, cook breaking the meat up until browned, about 5 minutes.

Add the onion, garlic, marjoram and black pepper and stir.Add the tomato sauce, paprika, beef broth and raisins (we used currants), cover and cook high pressure 15 minutes.Quick release, add the rice (we didn’t add the rice to the cooker as I can’t eat it), and cabbage and cook 3 minutes high pressure. Quick release and serve with additional rice if desired.

STOVE TOP DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, spray with oil then add the beef and salt, cook breaking the meat up until browned, about 5 minutes.

David’s plate with it served over rice.

I forgot to take a before with my dish.  This is a cup measurement, and I had eaten about half of it.  The flavor is spot on, and it didn’t take long at all.
We keep looking for other recipes for the Instant Pot.  I understand now what all of the talk is about.  It was super scary at first (I am afraid of it exploding!), but after this recipe and just following the directions —I love it!
Blessings!
