Description

This recipe was passed down to me from my Mom. She learned how to make it in her home economics class. It is such an easy and tasty side dish. Perfect for leftovers too!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 whole Green Pepper, Diced
  • 1 whole Medium Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 4 cups Prepared White Rice, Prepared According To Box Instructions (2 Cups Dry Rice Yields 4 Cups Prepared)
  • 1 can (15 Oz.) Tomato Sauce
  • 2 pinches Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

In a large stock pot, add ground beef, green peppers and onion over medium high heat. Add a dash of salt and pepper to the mixture. Cook until ground beef is brown and crumbled and veggies are tender. Drain excess grease.

Put ground beef mixture back into the stock pot. Add prepared rice and can of tomato sauce. Stir over medium heat until thoroughly combined and heated through. Taste and check for seasonings at this point. I usually feel it needs just a bit more salt and pepper. Turn off heat and add cheese (if using) until melted. Stir mixture to combine and serve.

Cook’s Note: My Mom occasionally adds cheese to her rice to make it a bit more gooey and yummy. If you are using boil-in-the-bag rice, you will need 2 bags of rice for this recipe. 2 cups of dry rice will make 4 cups prepared.

To reheat: put a cup or so of rice into a microwave-safe bowl. Sprinkle with about a Tablespoon of water or chicken broth. Cover with a paper towel and heat for about 1 minute. Stir to make sure it is evenly warmed through. Microwave for additional 20-30 seconds if necessary.
