  • Transfer the beef to the plate and drain well.
  • Wipe out the pot with a paper towel.
  • Add the garlic, onions and cabbage.
  • Saute over medium heat for 15 minutes, or until the cabbage is softened; if needed, add a few tablespoons water to the pot to prevent sticking.

  • Bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Cover, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes, or until the beets are tender.
