  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups packed coleslaw mix
  • 1 pound extra-lean ground beef round or sirloin

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1 cup canned stewed tomatoes or crushed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil shallow 12 x 8-inch baking pan.
  2. Place large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the 1 teaspoon vegetable oil; swirl to coat. Add coleslaw mix; brown well without stirring, about 3 minutes. Cook, stirring, 2 minutes longer, adding 2 tablespoons water after 1 minute. Let cool slightly.

Stir in 1 3/4 cups chicken broth and any degreased drippings reserved from Garden Meat Loaf. Cook, stirring, until slightly thickened and simmering.
