5 Spice Beef & Rice

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by AllergyGirl

This recipe came from my husband's grandmother, and we modified it a little bit to make it gluten and dairy free. As a kid this was my husband's favorite meal, and he used to walk around singing a little song about it "5 Spice Beef and Rice, Cha Cha Cha!" The five spices are pepper, bay leaf, garlic, thyme and oregano. It's very easy to make, and a good dinner staple.
