Recipe by Kizzikate

My Mom made this when we were growing up, and now my grandkids ask for it too! Great for those nights when you are short on time, but long on hungry kids! The secret is searing the meat briefly before simmering in gravy. Comfort Food!!

This was good and easy to make. I added a bunch of seasoning to the ground chuck and "doctored" up the beef gravy a bit adding seasoning and mushrooms. I also used brown rice as that is what I buy. Made for a good quick dinner. I also liked this because it is made with ingredients I normally have on hand. My kids ate this up.
