This was absolutely wonderful! The flavors all married together beautifully, the meat was seasoned well (I love the addition of rice to the meat), and overall, I felt comforted and satisfied (as advertised)! I made exactly as posted to maintain authenticity, expecting to want to tweak it a little the second time, but this is the first recipe I have found that I would leave just as is. Probably won't go on our regular rotation because DH is not a huge fan of cabbage (though even he liked the cabbage with the other ingredients, just not by itself), but I will put it on my list for when he goes out of town! *Note: My pot was too small for all the meat mixture, so I grilled up some patties using the extra meat for us to munch on while we waited, and those were good too! Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2009.
