Turkish White Cabbage with Meat Recipe (Kapuska)

This is another stew recipes that we cook at homes frequently in winter. We cook this stew with beef but we also cook it without meat with red pepper and rice.

If you like spicy food, add chili pepper when cooking or you can serve it later with red pepper flakes.

I personally eat yogurt with it 🙂

Bon appetit
