Cilantro Beef Orzo

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Muffin Goddess

This is one of my favorite main dish orzo recipes. Quick and easy to make (always good for weeknight dinners), and it reheats well. It's actually not bad cold, either. Adapted from a Betty Crocker website recipe.

  2. Cover and simmer for approximately 10 minutes, or until pasta is al dente.
  3. Remove from heat and let stand until nearly all the liquid is absorbed.
  4. While pasta is cooking, spray a 10-inch skillet with cooking spray. Add oil and heat over medium high heat. Saute sliced beef and bell pepper (if using) in oil for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is browned to your liking.
