This is middle east influenced and one of my favorite things to eat. Everyone seems to love it. Feel free to spice to taste. The rice is made seperately and is called Riz bi Sh'areh. It's the best.

Top Review by Michelle S.

This is a tasty, unique recipe. Love the spice blend in the ground beef mixture and the rice mix that it topped was the perfect match for it. It is economical, tasty and unique...just what I am looking for in a recipe these days. 5 stars!
