In my family cook stuffed cabbage stewed in tomato sauce. Often, cabbage is not suitable, and mess around with the twisting of cabbage is not always desirable. So I came up with this solution. The taste turns out not worse, but actually more practical and easier. You can cook on the stove or in a slow cooker, but I like the microwave because it won't burn!

Boil the rice. I do it in the microwave. First washed, then pour cold water 20 minutes Later poured cold water, pour boiling water, a little salt and microwave on high without covering with a lid for 10-20 minutes depending on quantity. Check to see if I can pour boiling water and put for 5 minutes. Cover with a lid, so as not to dry out.
Onion cut and spread on the bottom of a deep dish half. Carrots three on a grater and spread to the same half. (I took pre-grated carrots from the freezer)
Cabbage shinkuem or cut who knows how.
Put the cabbage in a large capacity and "jamkam" that is, make it rough, so she let the juice and as it became denser, less occupied place.
Spread a layer on top of our dishes in half the cabbage. Equate.
Take the minced meat and mix it with rice, and sprinkle with salt and pepper, try the mass was homogeneous.
Spread beef on top of cabbage evenly and making on-denser.
On top of meat put the second part of the cabbage. Crush.
Next, spread the remaining half of the onion and carrots. Bay leaf, more pepper, a little salt. You can add chopped green or dried.
Tomato paste mix in a glass of water and pour on top of our dishes. Or pour tomato juice.
Next, you pour the fluid all the content. Perfect if you have unsalted beef broth. If you have tomato juice (ideally home made) you can refill them.
The main thing that the liquid was slightly covered with a top layer.
Cover-a must! And put in the microwave for 20-40 minutes at maximum power. Time depends on the total number. The proportions are completely arbitrary, You can take any quantity of main products on your own, it will not play a significant role.
I always put on the minimum time and then check the readiness. Here is simply-cabbage must cease to be white, it turns orange. Try it to taste if in doubt-it should not crunch, it is soft. Crunches -put another 10 minutes on maximum power.
