Got this out of a Kraft recipe book sometime ago. It is a fast and easy dish.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 3⁄4 cups water
- 2⁄3 cup ketchup
- 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
- 2 cups MINUTE White Rice, uncooked
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Brown meat in large skillet on medium high heat and drain.
- Add water, ketchup and mustard.
- Bring to a boil.
- Stir in rice, Sprinkle with cheese, cover.
- Cook on low heat 5 minutes.
I was looking for a recipe with things on hand and came across this one. Reading the reviews, I added a small onion, 1 Tbl minced garlic and salt/pepper to the beef mixture. Once I combined the rice (instant brown rice) and cheese, I also added 3 dashes of hot sauce (Frank's Red Hot). It turned out GREAT! perfect cheeseburger type flavor and the hot sauce added spice with no heat. I will add another 1/4 cup water for the rice next round due to the extra additions. Great recipe! quick, easy and tasty. Thanks!!
I give this 5 stars on ease and quickness, but only 3 stars on flavor. It needed something extra for us, but I'm not sure what. I added a little extra ketchup. Maybe garlic or worcestershire? Leftovers may taste better. I would fix it again in a pinch to get dinner on the table quick, with ingredients I always have on hand. Thanks for posting.
I loved the way it turned out! The benefits of a recipe like this are: it's quick/easy, made with ingredients you almost always have on hand (so it's convenient), it is a mixture of elements that I wouldn't think to combine (so, it's not the same ole, same ole), and it tastes great! Good way to entertain the family on a whim and out-do yourself while not seeming like you cut corners in the process. Good stuff!
