I have always heard that one man's trash is another man's treasure. Well in this case one chef's garbage is another chef's treasure. This is a great recipe. I did scale it for a smaller amount with no problems. I used 2 pounds ground meat, cut the rice eggs, onions, vinegar, water and brown sugar in half, and used 1 15 ounce can of tomatoes, and 1 8 ounce tomato sauce. I also wasn't sure about whether is should bake covered or not, but because of the rice, I decided to cover and it turned out beautiful.
