Instead of the minced beef, you can use ground beef. It works just as well. Just use the same amount (12 oz) as you would with the minced beef but cook a little shorter.
With a bit of change

Quite nice - don't think I would do it again as quite fiddly to do and I prefer my kohlrabi stir fried or raw. There was way too much stuffing so I cooked it round the stuffed kohlrabi.
