Cooking spray
1 cup very thinly sliced green cabbage
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon minced fresh oregano
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 egg white
3/4 pound ground round
Cooking spray
2 tablespoons light ranch dressing
4 (1 3/4-ounce) hamburger buns, toasted
4 curly leaf lettuce leaves
4 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato
4 (1/4-inch-thick) slices onion


Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add cabbage, bell pepper, and onion; sauté 3 minutes. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, allowing each tablespoon to evaporate before adding the next; cook 5 minutes or until all liquid evaporates and vegetables are golden brown. Remove from heat; stir in oregano and rosemary. Let cool slightly.

Combine breadcrumbs and next 4 ingredients (breadcrumbs through egg white) in a medium bowl; stir well. Add cabbage mixture and beef; stir well. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping into 1/2-inch-thick patties.

Prepare grill. Place patties on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until done.

Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons ranch dressing over top half of each bun. Line bottom halves of buns with lettuce leaves; top each with a patty, tomato slice, onion slice, and top half of bun.
