    Chef Boy of Dee's's Note:

    My Spousal Unit Elaine found this recipe when she was living in Nebraska..It is similar to the Runza recipe posted elsewhere on the website, however it is a one-pan recipe and does not call for the inclusion of the bread dough...(which is the part of the Runza I disliked)

      The bouillon seems a bit salty to me so next time I'll use some homemade beef broth instead of it and the water. This is a very good recipe for a quick week night dinner. I'd definitely call it comfort food. I serve mine with some mashed potatoes.

      Very delicious! I used one can of low sodium beef broth, plus about a cup of water and a beef boullion cube. My husband smelled the aroma, came into the kitchen and said "mmm, Okazu" (sp?). He's Japanese, he said his Grandmother made something like this, minus the noodles, they served it over rice. So, he added shoyu to his portion and loved it, LOL. I loved it too. I'm definitely making this again as it's quick, cheap and easy and the husband gets his Okazu!! Comfort food for me! Thanks for the recipe Boy of Dee's :)

      Tasty and cheap! I added garlic powder to the meat, substituted a half cup of white cooking wine for part of the water, and added pepper at the end. Even the kids who don't really like cabbage wanted seconds. Mine did take longer to cook but I eyeballed the pasta and think I ended up putting in more. I did not notice a lack of salt.
