1 lb ground beef

1 onion, chopped

3 cups cabbage, chopped

1 cup green beans, cut in half

1 cup celery, chopped

1/2 bell pepper, chopped

1 796ml can diced tomatoes

1 156ml can tomato paste

1 tsp Italian seasoning

3 cloves minced garlic

3/4 900ml broth {vegetable, beef or chicken)

1 cup minute rice, uncooked

salt and pepper to taste


Cook ground beef until done and place in the slow cooker. Place in all the vegetables, and top with the stock, diced tomatoes, and tomato paste.

Add the spices, cover and cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 7-8 hours. In the last 15-20 minutes, add the rice and it’ll cook on it’s own. Check after 10 minutes and then every few minutes for rice doneness.
