Cooking Time: 1 hr 5 min
What You'll Need:
1 1/4 pounds ground beef
3/4 cup plain bread crumbs
3/4 cup water, divided
1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, not drained
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 head green cabbage, shredded (about 12 cups)
What To Do:
In a medium bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, 1/4 cup water, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Form mixture into 1-inch meatballs.
In another medium bowl, combine tomatoes, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, salt, and remaining water; mix well.
In a soup pot, place half the shredded cabbage. Add meatballs and half the tomato mixture. Top with remaining cabbage and remaining tomato mixture. Do not stir!
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes. Stir gently, being careful not to break up meatballs. Simmer an additional 40 minutes, or until cabbage is soft, stirring halfway through.
