Well, I think it was me who messed up. I used coarse ground bulgur & it took a LOT longer to cook. Stick with the fine or maybe medium? That said, I doubled it, it made a LOT & everyone enjoyed it! I added more cabbage than I was supposed to but it didn't hurt it any. This is a good recipe to have in your repertoire. :) Made for 'If it's September this must be Lebanon!'
