This is a recipe handed down from my grandmother, to my mother, and now to me. Simple yet tasty. They sure knew how to stretch a pound of hamburger back in the day.
- 1 -1 1⁄2 lb ground beef
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- dried onion flakes (about a TBLS more or less, to taste)
- 1 (1 lb) can tomatoes (more or less to taste)
- 1 beef bouillon cube (more or less to taste)
- 1⁄2 cup raw rice
- Brown ground beef in large skillet.
- Add green pepper, onion flakes, tomatoes, bouillon, and rice.
- Break up tomatoes if using whole.
- Cover and cook over low heat until rice is done and mixture is thick.
- May have to add water and more bouillon to taste.
Made this for Fall Pick-A-Chef 2011. I cut the recipe in half and used regular onion instead of dried (about 1/8 cup), added a small minced clove of garlic and since it didn't list water in the ingredients I added beef stock(about 1/2 to 3/4 cups) instead of the beef bouillon cube. I feel that it still needed something...maybe some herb seasoning or hot sauce for spice. I will try again because it is an easy and quick dish. Thank you for posting.
