This ground beef and cabbage dish is a comforting Turkish stew made with ground beef, cabbage, onions, and gently simmered in a tomato sauce.

This dish comes in various versions, allowing you to prepare it with ground lamb or chicken. Alternatively, for a vegan or vegetarian option, you can omit the meat altogether.

Begin by preparing the cabbage. Cut it in half vertically, starting from the top through the middle of the stem. Then, place the flat cut side down and proceed to cut the half cabbage into halves once more.

Place a Dutch oven or a heavy-based pan over medium heat. Add the ground beef, and cook it until nicely browned, breaking it down with a wooden spoon.

Cover the Dutch oven and gently simmer for 1 ½ hours or until the cabbage is tender. Check the seasoning and add some salt and pepper if needed.
