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 3 1/2-quart or larger electric slow cooker, combine onion, celery, garlic, bay leaf, and bell pepper.
Transfer browned beef cubes to cooker.
Pour a little of the water into baking pan, stirring to dissolve drippings; then pour into cooker.
Add broth and remaining water.
Cover and cook at low setting until beef is very tender when pierced (about 8 hours).
About 15 minutes before beef is done, prepare Yellow Rice.
While rice is cooking, increase cooker heat setting to high; add corn.
Cover; cook for 5 more minutes.
Add cabbage; cover and cook until cabbage is bright green and both cabbage and corn are tender to bite (8 to 10 more minutes).
Stir in cilantro; season to taste with salt and pepper.
Ladle soup into wide, shallow bowls; add a scoop of Yellow Rice to each.
