    Hi..I'm hoping someone can answer me soon. I'm making this tonite for my husband. I will be using cauliflower rice instead. What herbs or spices can I add to the cauliflower rice that would work well with this meat?

    Surprisingly DELICIOUS! My husband and I LOVED it. The only difference in mine is that I did not have enough cinnamon. And frankly, I was afraid to even put it at all. I was quite surprised at how DELICIOUS it tasted. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, chef2six!

    For me I would say 3 stars here and DH said a 2 so I it got my 3. Having said that, he is always less that open to new things but has been making an effort lately. He didn't eat much of his at all so that is his valid opinion. While I love Middle Eastern flavors I found I didn't love this as much as I usually enjoy north African dishes. You never know if you don't try and I'm glad I gave this a go. Made for PAC, Spring 2011
