  • 1 lb. ground beef lean
  • 2 strips bacon cut into small strips
  • 2 medium onions small dice
  • 1 clove garlic (I used a garlic press)
  • 3 cups cabbage shredded
  • 1 cup carrots shredded
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes NOT drained
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. In a separate skillet saute the bacon and the diced onions until the onions are soft.

  2. Add the pressed garlic mix it and then add the ground beef.

  3. Add salt and pepper to your preference.

  4. Cook it until all the meat is browned.

  5. Drain the fat and set aside.

  6. At this point you can wait for the meat to cool and freeze it for later use.

  7. In the crockpot, put the cabbage, carrots and bell pepper.

  8. Then add the meat mixture.

  9. And last the can of diced tomatoes.

  10. Season with salt and pepper.

  11. Cover the crockpot and set on High for 4 hours or Low for 6 hours.

  12. Once cooked, mix it all together and enjoy it over white rice!

Recipe Notes

The tomatoes that I used had some salt, but be mindful of it when seasoning. You can always add more salt at the end if you need it but you can't take it off.
