Lovely Supper (recipe) #lowcarb

Having some trouble with this, just too much cooked cabbage, but I WILL make this again, it was just lovely!

I made this in a great big deep electric fryer. It is really REALLY big. I could have also made it in a dutch oven, though, I think, on the stovetop.

olive oil
1c grape tomatoes
1 daikon radish, diced
2 medium yellow onions, diced
1 can chicken broth
1 can tomato paste
1# mild ground sausage
2 head napa cabbage, cut finely
sea salt to taste

Heated olive oil in the fryer, then added grape tomatoes, salted them, and stirred while they heated until they popped; removed from pan.

Added the onions and daikon to the hot pan, salted, and cooked until onions were translucent; pushed to one side, cooked the sausage in the other half, crumbling as it cooked.

Added tomato paste, stirring to coat sausage, onions, and daikon, then added the chicken broth and stirred together. Flattened out the contents of pan, then piled the cabbage on top and covered the pan; left it to cook on medium-low heat for 30 minutes, until flavors melded and cabbage got soft.

Tossed it all together and and served.


(How am I doing on my eating, you ask? Just fine :). Back to my low carb eating, dropping weight like crazy (that side effect of my surgery won't last forever!), trying to get used to yerba mate but after my first 2 cups I had more energy than I've had in forever...also seems to decrease my appetite, I think? I'll keep trying to like it - kinda tastes like stale cigarette smoke to me but I won't give up until I'm pretty sure it's just not gonna work out between us.)
