Wondering if anyone can comment on the ginger. Doesn't seem to be something I recognize as "Lebanese" and wonder how it is left out or substituted.
I kind of played with this to make it balkans Mediterranean fusion. Am very allegic to lamb so used ground beef. To me stuffed cabbage is always about using marinated cabbage so i got a head from my local balkans store. I also threw in a side of smoked ribs. But i used all the spices and sauce ingredients suggested in the recipe and it turned out great.
Great! Everyone LOVES this......with a few adjustments. The wine was not popular so I left that out. I used regular cabbage so needed 2 heads to use up all the filling. I found on another website that it is easier to take the leaves off by putting the cabbage in the microwave in a dish of water for 10 minutes. It takes some time to prepare but definitely worth the effort!
