I have to start out by giving a shout out to the Sugar Free Mom for this original recipe. I made some personal tweaks but the idea is all hers and I love her for it! One of my winter staples now.


  • 2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup shallots, diced
  • 16oz lean ground beef
  • 16 oz lean ground turkey
  • 1.5 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsps himalayan sea salt
  • 2 tsps fresh ground black pepper
  • 16 oz marinara sauce (your preference)
  • 1-2 bags frozen cauliflower rice (add according to the space left in your crockpot!)
  • 5 cups low sodium beef broth
  • 1 large head of cabbage, sliced  (Pro Tip, make the slices smaller e.g. cut lengthwise and then cut in half again for easier eating!)


  1. Heat olive oil and garlic on medium high heat.
  2. Add onions and shallots and cook until softened.
  3. Add ground beef and ground turkey and cook until browned and no longer pink.
  4. Add seasonings to beef and marinara sauce.
  5. Add the riced cauliflower to the meat mixture and stir until coated. Judge how much space you have in your crockpot by how much rice to add. You still have to add the cabbage later!
  6. Pour beef broth into crock pot and add cabbage.
  7. Stir to combine everything.
  8. Cook on high 3 hours or low 6 hours. If you don't have a crock pot, simply cook ground beef in a dutch oven or heavy soup pot, follow recipe and simmer on low, covered for about an hour until cabbage is tender.

I freeze in individual zip lock baggies for easy grab and take to work winter lunch options!
