When I make this I use my crock pot. I put the raw cabbage in the bottom of the crock, then sprinkle the uncooked rice right over top. Then I put the ground beef mixture over that. I use condensed tomato soup instead of tomato sauce, with 1 can full of water. Also I use one more can of soup over the top of the meat in the crock pot. Cook all day and come home to a great meal!!

This turned out ok. It was pretty watery. The tomato sauce measurement made me think it was originally meant to be condensed tomato soup - those are around 14 oz., while tomato sauce is 15 oz. (and I think it used to be 16 oz.). I accidentally added a can of water (ie. 15 oz.) after reading a nearly identical recipe and getting confused. I am pretty sure 8 oz. would have been ok. It was a little bland.

I also used the crock pot--was done on Lo in 4 hrs--added a bit more It seasoning and used a jar of spaghetti sauce which gave a bit more flavor. A tasty, filling, healthy meal--a bit of grated cheese on top when served was also a nice touch.
