I made this recipe on 2/27/13, and I'm so very sorry that I waited until now to rate this. Instead of cooking on top of the stove, my crockpot was used. As the burger meat and onions were browning, a bit of smoky seasoned salt was added. For the tomatoes,an undrained14.5 ounce can of tomatoes were used. The ingredients were added in this order,cabbage,rice,carrots,tomatoes,1 quart of water, and 5 bouillon cubes.Then the seasonings were mixed together and sprinkled over the mixture in the crockpot. I let it cook on low for 3 hours and then 3 hours on high. It turned out very thick and delicious. We both enjoyed it very much. Thank you for posting and " Keep Smiling :) "
