Bolognese with Butter-Fried Cabbage

Weeknights are for easy, hassle-free dinners that can be whipped up in the least amount of time, and satisfy everyone.
Cabbage is a big favourite of ours – especially for the kids – and so is a good old bolognese sauce.
So, let’s combine these dishes and create a bowl of buttery, fried cabbage, groaning under a delicious helping of rich and flavourful bolognese…

You will need:

250 g minced beef
1 batch of kid-friendly tomato sauce {click for recipe}

{OR for a bigger veggie-punch – make a batch of my hidden veg bolognese}

2 tbsp. coconut oil
1/2 a large white cabbage, finely shredded
50 g regular salted butter
1 tbsp. garlic & chili butter 
your choice of seasoning – I like to use Peppadew spice
spring onion to garnish
chili relish to serve – optional {I just LOVE Corrado’s Cucina’s Banting Chili relish!}

In a large pot, heat the coconut oil and cook the mince.
Season with salt.

When it’s just about cooked, add the tomato sauce and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes to allow all the flavours to mingle.

While the sauce is simmering, heat the butter in another pot and stir-fry the cabbage until golden.
Season with Peppadew spice or whatever multi-purpose seasoning you prefer that has a bit or garlic and onion.
{You could also just use fresh garlic and some chili…}

Serve the bolognese sauce on the buttery cabbage, sprinkle with some finely sliced spring onion and a dollop of chili relish.

I usually make a double batch {or even quadruple} of bolognese sauce and then freeze half for those days when I’m pressed for time.
Or I just keep it in the fridge to add to breakfast wraps in the morning or tacos later in the week…
