  • Prep Time: 25 mins
  • Cook Time: 35 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4-6 servings


  • pounds 80/20 ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 6-ounce cans tomato juice (or 18 ounces homemade tomato juice)
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar or corn syrup
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and quartered
  • 1 pound Russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • pounds green cabbage cut into four wedges (about half a medium head)

  4. Remove from heat and serve.
