The skillet recipe on Paleo Leap serves 4 people and requires 1 pound of ground beef, 1 chopped onion, half a head of chopped cabbage, 2 minced cloves of garlic, 15 ounces of diced tomatoes, 10 ounces of tomato sauce, cooking fat, sea salt and black pepper.

Melt cooking fat in a large skillet over a medium heat. Add garlic and onion, and cook slowly until fragrant and soft. Add the ground beef, and cook until it is no longer pink. Add the cabbage, tomatoes and tomato sauce, and stir to combine. Cover the skillet, and simmer on low heat for 25 minutes, or until the cabbage is soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.

This dish is nutritious and contains many essential vitamins and minerals. Cabbage contains vitamin C, and tomatoes contain vitamin B and potassium. The beef is high in protein, vitamin B12 and essential minerals such as iron. If possible, use homemade tomato sauce both to improve the flavor of the dish and to minimize preservative and sugar content.
