Hamburger Cabbage Skillet is an easy, one-pot dish to serve your family on a busy weeknight or when you just don’t feel like doing much in the kitchen.

Hamburger Cabbage Skillet Dinner Served on Blue Willow Plates

This recipe is simple to make and cooks in one skillet, so there is little clean-up involved. Made with hamburger, cabbage, tomatoes, onions and carrots, there is a bit of slicing and dicing, but that’s always good to practice your knife skills. I recently added chili sauce to go with the herbs and seasonings, which was a great addition and gave the dish a little tang that I loved.

My family loves German and Irish food, and they love cabbage. Sweet cabbage. Stuffed cabbage. Cabbage in rolls. Cabbage sauted with Kielbasa. You name it. We’ve tried it.

Cutting Cabbage into Wedges

I almost always have cabbage in my refrigerator. So I’m always looking for ways to use it. This is one of those throw together meals that my family ended up really liking.
