      The only thing I did differently was to put my rice and water into a crockpot, then dump everything I did in steps 1-16 on top of it and set it on low for several hours. It was delicious. Thanks for posting, Char.

      Thanks for an excellent recipe Charishma! It was simple. The only thing I did differently was to leave out the chicken bouillon cubes. Although it was good with the beef, I plan to make it with mutton or chicken the next time I make this.
