Farmhouse Beef Casserole

  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 small, about 4 ounces (120 g), Russet or all-purpose potato
  • 1 cup (114 g) shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 1 pound (480 g) extra-lean ground sirloin
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 14 1/2-ounce (435 g) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder, or to taste
  • 2 cups (140 g) shredded green cabbage
  • salt (optional)
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons of taco sauce
  • 6 slices pickled jalapeño chile peppers (optional)

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C, Gas Mark 5). Lightly coat a 2-quart (2 l) casserole with cooking spray. Peel and grate the potato into a bowl. Stir in 1/4 cup (29 g) of the cheese. Spread evenly over the bottom of the prepared casserole. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until potato is browned and crispy. Meanwhile, brown ground sirloin, onion, and garlic in a large nonstick skillet breaking up the beef with a wooden spoon as it browns. Discard any excess fat. Stir in tomatoes with their juice, chili powder, and cabbage. Season with pepper to taste. Sauté, stirring, for a minute or two. If the mixture seems too dry, add 1 tablespoon of the bottled taco sauce, adding up to 2 tablespoons more, if needed, if the mixture seems too dry. When the potatoes are done, spoon the beef mixture on top of the potatoes. Top with remaining cheese and jalapeño slices (if using). Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the casserole is hot and bubbly. Serve at once. (This diabetic recipe makes 6 servings)
