This was quick and easy to get put together and in the oven. I did leave out the bean sprous, but otherwise followed the recipe. The only problem I noticed is when I took it out after the first 30 minute, the rice was crunchy still so I poured about 2 Tbs of beef stock over the mix after I added the peas. Cooked for an additional 20 minutes and it was good. Made for Photo Tag.
