German style Meat and Barley Bake

As Friday comes to an end, my mood to prepare something different surfaces. After a hectic week I always go for some healthy and quick recipe. So, today I tried German style Beef and Barley Bake. Its really good to taste and easy to make though a little bit time taking.

I'm giving here original recipe
**** to reduce fat content I don't add bacon and in place of Caraway seed I add simple cumin seeds.

1 pound extra lean ground Lamb/beef 1/2 cup chopped onion
1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
1 cup pearl barley
4 slices bacon, diced
3 cups tomato juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 to 4 cups sliced green cabbage2 teaspoons caraway seeds
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

In large saucepan over medium heat, saute ground beef, onions and garlic until beef is browned. Pour off drippings. Add barley and bacon; saute 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in tomato juice, salt and pepper.

Bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 30 minutes. Stir in cabbage and caraway seeds. Spoon mixture into 2-quart casserole. Bake in 350° F oven 30 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese melts.

NOTE: To save on last-minute kitchen prep, this casserole may be made ahead of time and refrigerated. To reheat, bake at 350° 20 to 30 minutes or microwave (in a microwave-safe casserole) on Medium High until heated through.
