THE SOUP Arrange beef cubes slightly apart in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a 500 oven until well browned (about 20 minutes).

Meanwhile, in a 3½ quart or larger crockpot, combine onion, celery, garlic, bay leaf and bell pepper. Transfer browned beef to crockpot. Pour a little of the water into baking pan, stirring to dissolve drippings and pour into crockpot. Add broth and remaining water. Cover and cook on low about 8 hours. About 15 minutes before beef is done, prepare Yellow Rice.

While rice is cooking, increase cooker setting to high; add corn. Cover; cook for 5 minutes. Add cabbage; cover and cook until cabbage is bright green, 8 to 10 more minutes. Stir in cilantro; season with salt and pepper.

Ladle soup into wide, shallow bowls; add a scoop of rice to each. THE RICE 1 tablespoon salad oil 1 small onion, finely chopped 1 cup long-grain white rice ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric 1 ¾ cups water Heat oil in 2-quart pan over medium heat.
