    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    This recipe is almost like cabbage rolls without the work. It serves 8 to 10 so is great for entertaining and, even better, can be made ahead and refrigerated or frozen. In fact, the flavour improves when reheated! The recipe comes from a 1983 Canadian Living publication called Everyday Cookbook Special. NOTE: After receiving a few reviews I've reduce the sugar and vinegar by half. I completely agree that this was too sugary.

      This was good. It was a little to sweet for my guys. I liked it though.

      I made this according to the directions only doubled the sauce, it came out wonderful. Everything including the rice was cooked and it reheated well also.

      I followed these directions exactly, but the rice was not cooked at all, the onions in the tomato sauce were not cooked, and overall, I was very disappointed because it sounded like such a good recipe! The sourcream border makes the recipe, though, because without that, all you really taste is brown sugary tomatos. I won't be making it again, but you never know until you try I guess.
