Bring to a boil the rice. Wash the pieces of pork and beef, dry them with a paper towel, cut into large cubes and mince. Clean the bulb from the husk, shred and divide into 2 portions. Add to the mince half an onion, boiled rice, chopped greens, pour the egg, stir in ground pepper and 1.5 tsp salt.
