Reviews for Meaty Cabbage and Rice
"I make this often and always use the rice cooker. I used ground chicken in place of the beef and loved that also!"
"I have been making this recipe for years (since the issue came out) and honestly, a rice cooker is the easiest way to make it....worth the investment!!!! NO changes."
"Brown the beef, breaking it up. Add onion, celery, bell pepper, garlic and parsley and cook till tender. Add coooked long grain rice making sure not to "overrice" the meat mixture. Cook cabbage with onion and butter. Break some up and put into the ground beef mixture. Spread the cabbage in the bottom of a large pan, adding the meat mixture with the cabbage and rice added. Dot with butter and bake on 350 degrees until completely hot. Delicious stuffed cabbage casserole!!"
"I made this, doubled the receipe, it was a little hot next time will use mild tomatoes and peppers. Cooked it on top of the stove, it was really good."
"Here is another way to cook rice. I use a pressure cooker. Place rice and prescribed amount of water, you may also season at this time. I also sub chicken stock or broth for the water. Allow pressure to build; when it fobs, remove from heat immediately and let set 5 minutes. This works well for small portions - like 7 oz of rice - I'm single and do not cook large portions."
"You may cook the rice on a stove top or in a steamer. As per the package instructions. When rice is done fluff it with a fork and follow the rest of the recipe's instructions. It will turn out the same."
"Not a Crock Pot or Casserole was mentioned ..Only a Rice Cooker???Regina ,Texas"
"What about using a crock pot?"
"I think I would brownt the meat and add the remaining items and cook on the stove top."
"I agree. I don't have a rice cooker & don't plan to purchase one. How about a conversion. I will try the 1st 7 ingredients in a sauce pan to cook the rice and then proceed with the rest."
"I wouldn't mind trying this recipe but I have no rice cooker and do not intend to purchase one to try this. I may just improvise and make up my own version on the stove top or oven."
"not everyone has a rice cooker or the talent to adapt a recipe...it'd be nice if this one had adaptations for either stovetop or slow cooker"
"what is a cook light? My slow cooker does not have such a thing."
"I made this for dinner tonight using a large skillet, and it turned out great. Very tasty. I will add some brown sugar the next time I make it."
"A kettle on the stove?"
"I also do not have a rice cooker what can I use for analternate method Nina email@example.com"
"I also do not own a rice cooker and would like an alternate method.Jonnie1208"
"I agree with the above comments, but I am going to try it for dinner tonight. I'll let you know how it turned out."
"I agree, I would also like to know of an alternative method since I do not own a rice cooker."
"I am sure there are many others like me who do not have a rice cooker. In a case where such a specific appliance is used I would appreciate directions for alternate cooking methods."
"How would you double it? I know this is cooking for two, recipe sounds GREAT, but I would need it for 4. I have never had much success when doubling a recipe......."
"Can this delicious-sounding recipe be done in a slow cooker? I'd appreciate any onfo. Thanks!"
"This sounds really good AND easy...however, I don't have a rice cooker...Do you suppose it would come out just as well cooking those first ingredients on a regular stove burner? If anyone has tried it, I'd love to know how it came out, how long it was cooked, etc....Thanks!"
"Wow- I didn't know you could put stuff like this in a rice cooker. I have had one since I was married 20 years ago and only put rice,water and salt in it. I guess you learn something new everyday!"
