Top Review by Montana Heart Song
The broth taste was very good. You can definitely taste the peppercorns and bay leaf.
By squeezing the tomato the broth was not clear. I cooked the vegetables ala dente,
everyone enjoyed the hamburger rice and vegies after I cooked the vegies until soft, not
slightly hard. I also turned the cabbage wedges over so they would cook all the way through.
The taste was delicious after cooking more and adding the Ranch Seasoning.
