1/2 a head of a small green or red cabbage, core removed, shredded (optional)
4 slices of crisp fried bacon
1 package of frozen green peas, thawed
4 lamb or pork chops, large
24 oz spaghetti sauce , bottled
1/4 cup sweet red wine (optional)

is dry.

Italian peppers, cut into quarters lengthwise. Enough to cover the
bottom. I also some times use ripe plantain or boiled green banana
in place of the white yam or some times I use all and make sure I
add more sauce or water so that it does not dry out. Instead of
chops, you can use ground beef, pork sausages or chicken cutlets
or veal cutlets. With the chicken or veal I would use A Mushroom
