Cabbage-roll stir-fry

Prep 10 min
Plus Cooking time: 12 minutes
Makes 4 servings



large onion, chopped
500 g
ground pork or ground beef
796-mL can
plum tomatoes, drained and coarsely chopped
213-mL can
1 tbsp
2 tbsp
1 tsp
dried oregano
1 tsp
dried thyme
1/2 tsp
1/2 tsp
green bell pepper
454-g pkg
coleslaw mix, or 1/2 cabbage


  • Lightly coat a wok or large saucepan with oil and place over medium-high heat. Add onion and crumble in pork. Using a fork, stir frequently to keep meat crumbly until it’s almost cooked through, 3 to 4 min. Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and seasonings. Stir often until flavour develops, about 5 min.
  • Meanwhile, slice green pepper into thin strips. If using a cabbage, thinly slice. Add pepper, cabbage or coleslaw mix to pan and stir often, uncovered, until cabbage is tender, 4 to 5 min. Taste and add salt if needed. It’s good on rice or mashed potatoes, or wrapped in a tortilla.

One taste of this hearty supper and you’ll wonder why you ever wasted time rolling cabbage. It tastes just as comforting, with one-quarter of the prep time.
