    I have made this several times now and we love it!! I used reduced sodium soy sauce, and about half of the suggested amount. Also I include whatever I have on hand for fresh veggies. great way to get those veggies into the diet- this is one recipe I will pull out to make again & again!! - 1/2/10

    This was very good, I did not use the oil and I drained my meat before adding the cabbage. My 5 year old also ate this without a fuss which is not often for her, so it's going in my recipe book. - 2/12/09

    Delicious! I ate mine without rice! Make sure to drain as much of the oil as possible after browning the meat though! - 3/19/12

    I like how it taste. I am looking forward to dinner tonight. I did make a slight change. I did not have any bell peppers or carrots left so I added a plum tomato and shallots (chopped), then added worcestershire sauce and grated parmesan cheese. - 5/25/10

    This works well. If using beef, you don't need oil. An excellent way to use up any odds and ends of vegetables. I use a beef stock cube and bisto in my beef mince - great for covering the strong taste of cabbage for people who aren't so keen. Works well with sliced Brussels sprouts too. - 10/9/12

    This was very good, my entire family loved it... I did not use the oil, added oregeno,cayenne pepper and worcestershire sauce for more flavor. I had rice as a side dish for everyone but me, I had mine w/o the rice to save on calories..this receipe is definately a keeper. - 9/19/12

    I just got 10 lbs of cabbage from the unintended plants in my yard. this was a tasty way to use some of it. I like a little more spice tho, so I added some garlic and hot peppers. We will do it again! - 7/17/12

    Our whole family loved this recipe! I used ground turkey, no oil, and cabbage which was pre-chopped to make cole slaw as a time saver. I also used low-sodium soy sauce. Since I didn't have green pepper, I substituted celery. It was very nicely seasoned. - 4/13/11

    This was good--my kids ate it without comment, but with the olive oil added to the ground beef at the beginning, and no draining, it was a little greasy. I think next time I would omit the olive oil. - 5/2/08

  • In lieu of Cabbage, use Asian or regular cole slaw mix. Green pepper can be chopped as well. Teriyaki or oyster sauce instead of soy. - 11/15/13
