Never had it with cabbage but with Kale. Is it a Reginald thing?

Eduardo
Olivia, some people use collard greens, some kale and some cabbage, it's an ingredient you can use according to your taste.

This is exactly our recipe except we didn't add cabbage. Meat was served on a platter to be added as desired or eaten separately. Thank you so much for posting! I've been looking for our family's version (no wine) and this is it!

Eduardo
Great to hear Kim, you're welcome. :)
