Ratings & Reviews
I substituted rutabaga for cabbage but it did not take away from the flavour. The meat was juicy and the cinnamon apple perfect with the meat. During cooking time I realized the recipe did not call for salt but at the end it did't need any. I served it with sliced potatoes herbed and salted and baked in the oven until the edges were crispy. It was a very nice experiment with this recipe.
