- 1⁄2-1 lb ground beef or 1⁄2-1 lb turkey
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 green pepper, chopped
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 cup long grain white rice
- 4 beef bouillon cubes
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 3 -4 cups tap water
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons soy sauce
- I like to make this in a 12" skillet because the rice expands a lot. You could use a 3-quart or larger saucepan, if you don't have a skillet that's big enough.
- Fry up your meat until it is all broken up and brown. Drain off the fat if necessary.
- Add the vegetables and garlic and sautè until the onions are tender and fragrant.
- Add the rice, bouillon, paprika, red pepper flakes, 3 cups of tap water and the soy sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil.
- Reduce the heat to very low and put a good lid on the skillet or saucepan. Simmer for about 30 minutes.
- If you think you need it, then add more water while it cooks, to keep things moist.
- Serve hot with fresh or canned fruit on the side.
- Note: When I don't have green pepper I use frozen peas or mixed veggies instead. Usually about 1 to 2 cups of veggies is enough.
