Ground Pork – 1 lb
Long Grain Rice – 1 cup (uncooked)
Cabbage – 1 medium chopped (core removed)
Diced Tomatoes – 1 28 ounce can
Tomato Paste – 2 tbsp
Beef Broth – 4 cups (Better Then Bouillon)
V8 Vegetable Juice – 2 cups (I like to use 2 small 5.5oz cans of the original V8 & 2 small 5.5oz cans of the Spicy V8)
Paprika – 1 tsp
Thyme – 1 tsp
Worcestershire Sauce – 1 tbsp
Bay Leaf – 1 or 2

In a large pot, brown pork and beef. Drain any fat. Add garlic, fry till fragrant. Add onion, fry till translucent.
