You can get a pound of ground beef, a head of cabbage, and a few pantry staples for under ten dollars. With those few ingredients, you can then feed a family with ease.

And you might be surprised at just how versatile these ground beef and cabbage recipes are.

But between scrumptious stir-fries, tasty tacos, and crave-worthy casseroles, you really can’t go wrong!

1. Beef and Cabbage Stir-Fry

This Asian-inspired ground beef dinner is super tasty and very budget-friendly.

It’s loaded with healthy goodness from cabbage, onions, garlic, ginger, and carrots. Hello, immunity boost! 

Then, you fry everything in a sweet, salty, and spicy sauce that’s seriously delicious.

You can eat it alone for a low-carb meal or bulk it up with some rice if you prefer.

Either way, you’ll love it! 

2. Ground Beef Cabbage Soup

There’s nothing like settling down to a warm bowl of soup.

This cabbage and ground beef soup has all the flavors of cabbage rolls; only it’s way easier to make. 

Full of tomatoes, onions, cabbage, carrots, and celery, each spoonful yields a healthy and delicious garden of goodness.

Of course, there’s the beef too, which is super savory. Delish!

3. Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Cabbage rolls are found on dinner tables around the world because they’re delicious, easy, and budget-friendly.

And in only an hour and a half, they can be found on your table too. 

I know that seems like a lot, but it’s mostly oven time. And every second is worth it in the end.

Each cabbage leaf is stuffed with seasoned rice and beef. Then, they’re smothered with a buttery tomato sauce.

These are simply mouthwatering, so you should probably make extra!

4. Ground Beef and Cabbage Casserole

This ground beef casserole is like the lovechild of a sloppy joe and a cabbage roll.

It’s super beefy with a sweet, tangy tomato sauce like sloppy joes. But it tastes like a cabbage roll. 

Unlike a cabbage roll, this casserole has no rice, so it’s low-carb friendly. 

The best part is it’s topped with tons of cheese. It’s ooey-gooey and impossible to resist! 

5. Ground Beef Cabbage Roll Casserole

Unlike the last casserole, this one does have some rice! That’s because it’s essentially just a giant, unstuffed cabbage roll.

It’s saucy, cheesy, and full of ground beef and cabbage roll goodness. 

6. Keto Italian Beef with Cabbage Noodles

When you think Italian, it’s unlikely that you’d think “low-carb.” But this keto ground beef dinner gives you the best of both worlds! 

Sure, you could have zoodles or carrot noodles, but cabbage is where it’s at. 

First, it’s super inexpensive, and a little goes a long way. Second, cabbage gets super buttery, crispy, and sweet when it’s cooked. 

And because cabbage is very low in calories, you can eat a ton of it!

Juicy ground beef and marinara sauce finish this delicious dish. I know you’ll put this one on repeat.

7. Ground Beef Bulgogi Bowls

If you’ve never had Korean barbecue, particularly bulgogi, then you absolutely need to try this!

Bulgogi is known for its fantastic sweet-savory meat, and this bowl does not disappoint.

Featuring the perfect combination of rich beef and fresh veggies, every bite will rock your taste buds.

While ground beef isn’t typical, it works really well in this dish.

Since it cooks quickly, it means you get to eat faster! And it soaks up the sauce wonderfully. 

The cabbage in this dish is raw, adding a lovely bitterness that contrasts the meat’s sweetness.

It’s a scrumptious food revelation. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

8. Unstuffed Cabbage Ground Beef Low-Carb Dinner

You can create this fantastic dinner in just thirty minutes and only one pot!

It’s loaded with healthy veggies and mouthwatering beef, so you know it’s delicious. 

And it’s like a 90s sitcom-level-cheesy (that’s super cheesy!), making it taste even better.  

9. Hamburger Cabbage Casserole

This hamburger cabbage casserole is rustic and delicious.

Made with tomatoes, cabbage, and beef, it’s simple food, but sometimes, simple is best. 

And it just so happens to be low-carb, so that’s a great bonus!

10. Ground Beef Taco Cabbage Skillet

Tex-Mex anything is tasty in my book.

I just love the bold flavors and rich meats that are integral to the cuisine. And this cabbage skillet features those flavors perfectly. 

This dish is a great way to sneak extra veggies into your diet. Although, those benefits might be contradicted by the sheer amount of cheese on top. 

Serve with your favorite taco toppings like pico de gallo or guacamole. Yum!
