  • Reduce the temperature to medium-low. Cover the pan with a lid and let the cabbage and rice cook for 30 minutes, stirring it every 10 minutes (if the rice absorbs a ton of water, feel free to add a bit more to prevent sticking). Give the rice a taste test to make sure it's cooked all the way through before serving. Enjoy!
