- 1 lb. lean ground beef
- 1 small head cabbage, sliced and chopped

- 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil

Using a large skillet, brown ground beef, onions and garlic in oil until beef is cooked through. Always season beef with salt and pepper while browning.
Stir 3 tablespoons of tomato paste into the beef.
Add cabbage to the skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let cook for about 2 minutes, stirring often. (You can add a little more sesame oil at this point.)
Add water, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce; stir through beef and cabbage until well coated. Bring to a light boil; reduce heat and cover. Simmer for about 5 minutes then remove the lid and cook for about 5 more minutes or until the cabbage is tender to your liking.
Right before it is done cooking, stir in the additional tomato paste.
If you like your cabbage cooked a little bit longer, cook it for about 15 minutes total.
