Stuffed Cabbage Goof .. Help Please :)
Ok, here is what happened .. I usually make my filling and use uncooked minute rice in the filling .. this time I added regular uncooked long grain rice and after putting them all together (50 or so) realized that I probably should have cooked the rice first ... on a side note I only used regular rice because my sister doesnt care for minute rice .. in all honesty I think they come out fine with minute rice.
So, my question is .. what to do now ?? I think they would still cook up fine in a crockpot with a can of stewed tomatoes or something for moisture .. your thoughts? Has anyone made this same goof ?
Thanks in advance !
I think they'll be fine as long as you use plenty of liquid when you cook them. I've always used cooked rice (saved from leftovers and frozen for that purpose), so haven't tried it your way.
I don't think that you will have a problem. I never pre-cook my rice and everything turns out fine. Assuming that the primary filling is ground meat, the rice will be cooked, probably, before the meat is cooked.
I also always use raw rice. I use tomato juice for liquid and simmer for an hour and a half. It DOES take the rice longer to cook than the meat.
