Carb-Wise: Scandinavian-Style Beef & Cabbage Meatloaf

with Sautéed String Beans

Cooking time

25 minutes




670 /serving

When’s better than winter to look north for inspiration? Nordic countries know all about cold-weather cooking, and they’ve got rib-sticking down to a science! In an unusual twist, this meatloaf combines ground beef with cabbage softened with cream, honey and demi-glace for extra tender and rich results. It gets a finishing broil with breadcrumbs so it’s beautiful and bronzed when presented. Finally, coat sautéed string beans in butter for extra warmth.

Cook the cabbage
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve, peel and mince the shallot. In a medium pan, heat 1 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium. Sauté the shallot, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the cabbage and sauté, 2 to 3 min., until beginning to brown. Add the cream, honey, ½ the demi-glace, 2 tbsp water (double for 4 portions), ⅓ of the spices and S&P; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 min., until tender and slightly reduced.

Meanwhile, remove the stem ends of the string beans. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the string beans, 1 to 2 min., until beginning to soften. Add 1 tbsp water, 1 tbsp butter (double both for 4 portions), the remaining spices and S&P. Sauté, 1 to 2 min., until crisp-tender.
