A flavorful medley of rice, peas, and seasoned ground beef, tossed together for a tasty all-in-one meal!
1 cup (uncooked measurement) of rice, cooked according to package instructions*
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 onion, diced
1/4 green pepper, diced (optional)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup cooked peas (hot)
1/2 cup hot cooked corn, optional
1/4 teaspoon pepper
salt, to taste
1. Brown ground beef with onion, green pepper (if using), and garlic. Drain grease.
2. In a large bowl, toss cooked meat with the hot rice, peas, corn (if using), and pepper. Add salt to taste (this recipe needs salt, so don't skip that part!) and serve.
*Or, 3 cups of cooked rice; you can use yellow rice instead of plain rice if you wish.
My mom has made this one-dish meal ever since I can remember, and it has always been one of my favorites. I think the vegetables, rice, and meat complement each other well, and it's easy to eat a huge plate of this rice medley! It's also an easy meal to make, and is a good use for leftover rice or beef. My rating: 10/10
