Why is there no option to save a recipe on this site?? This is maddening!!!

There is! Underneath the instructions, there's a bunch of social media icons and a button with a plus sign that says "save." That'll save this recipe in your recipe box. Hope this helps!

I have to make this dish soon. We eat a lot of cabbage and this recipe seems so easy to made.. I will have to add spinach and remove the ground beef with ground chicken. Hope it turns good enough for my family to eat.
