This recipe is one from childhood. My grandmother made it with Savoy cabbage. I make it with any green cabbage. My husband is a carrot lover and I will occasionally add a few to the mix. It's a nice flavor. I've also used purple cabbage for this and mixed it with cooked rice in the end to make a filling meal.
