I rated this low due to results. I will make this again with some major changes. I followed the directions exactly. The outcome tasted pretty good but the texture of the rice after cooking for so long was a gelatenous mess. In making this again I will add the rice about 1 hour from the meat/vegetable mixture being done. I will also add a LOT more carrots and other root vegetables to this. There was a nice earthy taste with the mushrooms, beef, carrots and rice seasoning mix.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced 11/2 (inch thick)
  • 1 (6 ounce) box long grain and wild rice blend (Uncle Ben's brand suggested)
  • 1 lb beef sirloin, cut in 1/2-inch cubes
  • 5 cups beef broth


  1. Place mushrooms, carrots, and rice mix with seasoning packet in crockpot and stir to combine. Top with beef. (Beef will slice easier if partially frozen.) Pour beef broth over all.
  2. Cover and cook on LO setting for 8-10 hours. This is nice served with garlic toast.
