Just dump it in a casserole and bake... If you like tinned mushrooms and bean sprouts, the prep time is even faster...
- 1 lb hamburger (browned and well drained)
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 1 can water
- 1 can Minute Rice
- 1⁄3 cup chopped celery
- 1⁄3 cup chopped onion
- 1 1⁄2 cups bean sprouts (or tinned if you must)
- 1⁄3 cup soya sauce
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 1⁄2 cups sliced mushrooms (or tinned if you must)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 can chow mein noodles
- Cook the mushrooms in butter in a non stick pan until tender.
- (if you don't want to do this use 1 can sliced mushrooms) Add the bean sprouts and cook for two minutes (if you don't want to do this used tinned) Mix all the ingredients in a large casserole dish.
- Cover and bake at 350F for at least 45 minutes.
This was a very quick and easy dish to put together. I had sauteed the mushrooms for a few minutes then added the celery, onions and sprouts and gave them about a minute. Also I had a quarter of a red pepper I threw in just to use it up. Put all that in a bowl while browning the beef. I had cut the recipe in half so instead of using half can of mushroom soup and half can of chicken , I just went with one can of mushroom soup. The water I used a 1/2 can of the soup can to measure. As I was told the Minute Rice use to come pre-done in Cans but it is no longer sold that way. So I used 1/2 Cup regular minute rice (uncooked) and that turned out to be a perfect amount. I mixed everything in the bowl then poured it into a casserole dish and baked it. I will have to say the casserole doesn't have a very appetizing look to it, but I will say that it is actually delicious. I just sprinkled a few noodles on top when I served it. The flavor was surprisingly yummy. I will make again and throw in some water chestnuts for some extra crunch. . Thanks for posting your recipe Pixie, we all loved it.
This was a very easy casserole to make. The only thing I did different was to serve the meat mixture over the chow mein noodles instead of adding them in the casserole and topping it with soy sauce. Thanks Pixie
