Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

I think this originated at here. I make adjustments from time to time. It's not a regular at our house, because we don't eat very much beef. But it is very good. This time I used frozen meatballs. I defrosted them in the microwave and chopped them in the food processor. I didn't have ground beef.

It's very tasty and has cabbage, which is good for the digestion and cheap to boot! Our CSA starts up again next Thursday, so then my meal planning will based around what we get there. We got a great deal this the full year up front for $850. This comes out to a little less than $20 a week. And then if we volunteer for a shift, we get a $50 gift certificate to the produce stand. Yay!

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry
1 T. canola oil: 0.04
4 cloves garlic: 0.16
9 oz frozen meatballs, defrosted and chopped: 1.27
1 small head cabbage (1.5 to 2 lbs): 0.65
1 green bell pepper: 0.46
3 T. soy sauce: 0.26
2 tsp corn starch
1/2 c. water
1 tsp black pepper: 0.02

served with:
1 3-oz package ramen noodles: 0.16

Total: $3.02 for 5 servings. This fed my husband and I two nights and one lunch for me. Our toddler ate maybe 5 bites each night too. That's $0.60 per serving.

There's not a lot of noodles in there, but that's okay. Doesn't need much. I just scooped the cabbage on top of the noodles.

I just found your website and I love it. I have been figuring cost for meals for only two weeks but I am adicted to it.
