I've fixed this twice now. The first time, I think I may have added way to much cayenne. The next time, the correct amounts. This is wonderful with a blander meat, but since it does have a "kick", probably not a spicy meat. I'm making it yet again, and every time I make it, I tend to eat most of it from the pan before I even get a chance to serve it. It's a new favorite.

I made this to serve with Stuffed Peppers and we enjoyed it. The spiciness was a nice addition to cabbage. I also loved the fact no oil is used so it is low cal & low fat! I will be making this recipe again. Thank you for sharing your recipe. =) *reviewed for Spring 2007 Pick A Chef*

I make this all the time with dried minced onion, garlic power and a small amount of sugar or sugar substitute.
