Instructions

  1. Finely chop onion and garlic, coarsely grate carrots. Place the onion and garlic in a large saucepan and fry in oil until translucent. Add grated carrots and continue to fry for couple more minutes until carrots have softened.
  2. Meanwhile, finely slice cabbage. Add cabbage, rice and water to the saucepan. Cover and let it simmer on medium low heat until rice and cabbage are half done (around 7 minutes).
  3. Meanwhile, in a separate pan brown the mince meat. When meat is nearly done, add tomato paste.
  4. Add meat mixture to cabbage mixture and mix well. If required, add a bit more water.
  5. Let the stew simmer for further 10 minutes or until rice is cooked and cabbage done to your liking.

Notes

If you have leftover cooked rice, you can add the rice at the same time when adding meat.
