Using ground beef with a high amount of fat makes this dish a very filling choice. This recipe doesn't take long to prepare, and is pretty satisfying. You might think the cabbage wraps don't fit, but with all the flavor from the Sloppy Joe mixture, you probably won't even miss the bun!
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and peppers and saute until soft.
Add ground beef and stir until browned. Season with freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Add tomato sauce and chili powder. Simmer 5 minutes or until beef is cooked through.
To serve, spoon Sloppy Joe mixture into cabbage wraps, being careful not to overfill.
(I am wondering if the cabbage leaves should be cut off, left whole, and lightly steamed to make them a little more pliable?)
