This is a easy recipe and very tasty as a main dish or side dish. My mother made it for me as a teenager 50 plus years ago. Please Enjoy!! Use brown rice as it is much better for you.

This is comfort food, dinner in a bowl, with meat, rice and veggies all in one. If you like chili mac, you'll like this too. We put in extra beef because it was the main dish, and sprinkled a little cheese on top for color; otherwise followed the recipe exactly, and we enjoyed it. Made for Pick A Chef, March 09.
