When I make this recipe, I change the servings to 24 (doubling the recipe) because this dish is so time intensive. It's also easier to purchase and work with full pounds of meat. I pull half of the meat and vegetable mixture from Step 6 and put it into a freezer bag to be used another day. This mixture freezes wonderfully and is perfect for a 40 oz bag of riced cauliflower! Easy meal for later.
