"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."
"I really liked this meal. It was so easy to make up. At first when I added the noodles and cabbage I didn't think there was going to be enough liquid to cook the noodles but, it turned out perfect. Lately, I have just been addicted to recipes with cabbage and this hit the spot!! We added two cloves garlic and 1/2 tsp. thyme otherwise we followed the recipe. Great recipe!!"
"I thought this recipe was really good, but my husband wasn't as big of fan of it. It's just a nice easy meal to make. We took the leftovers and stuffed bread dough with it and that turned out great."
"It was very, very simple to create since I always try to have burger cooked and frozen. I think it needed a little more zip, as did my oldest. My youngest hated it because there was a vegetable in there. But it is on the agenda for other nights. Thanks a ton to your "spousal unit"!"
"This family-type dish was so good and easy to make! A great hot supper on a cold night when you are just too tired to fuss! I substituted the same amount of low sodium beef broth for the boullion and water. Tasted great! I've never had a Runza but I'm sure I would love them if they tasted like this dish! Thank you for a quick, easy weeknight meal!"
"I did not care to much for this recipe though my son, husband and his coworkers loved it. It had a real sweet taste because of all the cabbage. This recipe was very easy to make. My son thought it reminded him of hamburger helper (because of the mixture). "
"Quickest, easiest meal I have prepared in a long time, short of PBJ sandwiches!!! DH and I were planning on having sandwiches tonight, but I just wanted to cook. This is what I chose and I am glad I did. It is delicious and it was not too salty for us, however I did not have bouillon granules, I had the cubes. Maybe they don't have the sodium of granules? I agree with Mysterygirl, it is comfort food. It will definitely be a cold weather favorite! "
