Making cabbage rolls are a tradition in my family. I’ve shared our awesome recipe for making cabbage rolls and highly recommend you try them at some point. It’s a labor of love, but the end product will blow your socks off.
While I made a batch at the beginning of quarantine, I tucked most of them away in the freezer for a rainy day when I need comfort food. And, this week, I was craving them again… yet wanting to stay on my Jenny Craig program.
Then, this magic idea popped into my head, and turned out even better than I’d imagined!
Program Note: I did use 1 Tbsp. of tomato sauce in this recipe, which is not considered a fresh and free addition and should be counted as a limited free. As always, please review any additions to your menu with your consultant to evaluate the impact to your program.
New Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Unstuffed Cabbage Bowl | No Thanks to Cake
- 1 Jenny Craig Stuffed Green Bell Pepper
- 4 cups green cabbage, shredded
- 2 Tbsp. beef broth, reduced sodium
- 1 Tbsp. tomato sauce
- 1 tsp. soy sauce, reduced sodium
- ¼ cup sweet onion, diced
- cooking spray
- salt and pepper
- Prepare your stuffed pepper in the microwave per package instructions. Remove and set aside to cool.
- Prepare a large skillet with cooking spray, and add cabbage and onion. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook at medium heat until cabbage becomes tender and cooked through, about 12-15 minutes. Stir frequently to avoid the vegetables getting overly charred.
- Remove the stuffed pepper to a cutting board. Chop the pepper and the beef mixture into small pieces.
- Add broth, soy sauce, and tomato sauce to the sauce remaining in the microwaveable bowl. Stir to combine.
- Add beef and pepper to the skillet + the sauce mixture. Stir to combine and mixed well.
- Serve and enjoy. Add salt and pepper, if needed.
