This was a recipe I got from Wegmans grocery stores in our area. It tastes even better reheated.

This recipe sounded so good, but we ended up just tossing it out and going out for fast food. I followed the recipe as is, but my rice never seemed to stop being crunchy. I tried adding more water, a can of tomato soup, anything to give it more liquid to cook the rice, but to no avail. It ended up cooking for over an hour and by then the cabbage was unrecognizable. If I were to attempt this recipe again I would use either cooked rice or instant and save the cabbage until the last 10 minutes or so.
