Combine ground pork, ground beef, and 2 beaten eggs.
Add rice and cabbage/onion mixture to ground beef and pork. Add basil leaves and tumeric and thoroughly work the ingredients together.
Pour into a ring or mold to bake oiling all exposed surfaces of the pan with olive oil. If you don't have a cooking ring you can use an angel food cake pan and put foil underneath to catch any drippings.
