Hamburger Pilaf

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Sweet PQ

This makes a fast one dish "hamburger helper" type meal. Be sure to use a good beef broth as it provides a great deal of flavour for your dish. Sometimes I add sliced mushrooms that I saute with the onion & pepper. This can also be made with ground chicken, using chicken broth.

Easy and very kid friendly. I did add 2 extra cloves of garlic and increased the Mrs. Dash seasoning to 1 tsp. I also used my oven at 350 for 30 minutes. I don't have much luck cooking rice in anything on the stove top.
