Simply delicious I added fresh ginger & sweet onion to the meat & will be making this recipe many more times. My diabetic half loved the sweet healthy flavor!

The family really enjoyed this dish which I've added to my recipe collection to make again. I used mild Italian sausage because I had no ground beef and would do it again it was very tasty. I still used the spice amounts in the recipe except reduced the salt by half and will do that again when using Italian sausage. It was not too spicy and was enjoyed by everyone. Next time I'll double the recipe so there will be more leftovers for lunches. Thanks for sharing this recipe for us to enjoy!
