Lazy stuffed cabbage stew

I love galumpki's but don't have the patience to make them so this is all of the delishousness with less of the work!
  • 4 tbsp butter, divided
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb grassfed ground beef
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1 tsp salt, more to taste
  • 1 tsp black pepper, more to taste
  • 1 (22oz) can or jar diced or crushed tomatoes
  • 1 head green cabbage, cored and coarsely chopped
  • 3 leaves collard greens, stems removed, coarsely chopped
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 2 cups cooked rice

1. Warm 2 tbsp of the butter over medium heat, then add the onion. Sauté until softened, about 5 minutes, then add the garlic and sauté until aromatic, about 1 minute. Add the ground beef, and sauté until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add the spices and the rest of the butter, and stir to combine.

2. Add the tomatoes and cabbage and collard greens; if the cabbage doesn’t fit, simply cook it down for a couple minutes and add some rest. Stir to combine then cover, reduce heat to med/low, and simmer until the cabbage is softened, 10-20 minutes depending on how thick the cabbage is.

3. Add the carrots (and optional cooked rice) and simmer uncovered until the carrots are softened, about 2 minutes, then serve. This dish tastes best when refrigerated overnight and reheated.
