Pre-cook rice ahead of time. Dice meat and brown in skillet, (in a little oil or nonstick cooking spray). Chop cabbage into bitesized pieces. Dice onions and slice carrots into thin slices. Add cabbage, onions and carrots to meat just before meat is done. Cook together until tender. Add cooked rice and mix well. Simmer about 15 minutes. Season as desired.
