Of course, you could use any kind of ground meat (chicken, beef, pork, turkey) or even a shredded version of the meat, which I think would be an enjoyable texture.

You can also add any veggies you’d like besides cabbage such as peppers, onions, mushrooms, and bean sprouts. The possibilities are endless!
