"Could it get any easier?? All ingredients go in uncooked, layered and baked. That's it! Great time saver. Just add a vegetable or salad."

  1. This was so easy and delicious! I used brown rice and added a can of kidney beans. I couldn't stop picking at it after we ate dinner. It does make alot for 2 people so I froze the rest for future easy dinners. YUM!
  2. Cant get any more simple than this! Like other reviewers, I recommend stirring this midway through cooking to ensure things are cooking evenly. This was classic comfort food. Very hearty and a complete meal if you add some steamed veggies or a salad on the side.
  3. We made this for dinner the other night and the rice wasnt cooked all the way through. I would definitely stir it next time in the middle of cooking. Other than that, very easy. Thanks for sharing!
  4. I made this tonight using ground venison, about a cup of chopped onion, and a couple cloves of minced garlic. I pre-cooked the beef and rice and only added about a 1/4 cup water to the casserole when assembling and also threw in about 1/2 c. of sour cream. Topped with shredded mozza cheese ~ YUMMMMM!!!
  5. What a great recipe. You only have to clean a mixing bowl while this bakes. I used 93% ground beef and 98% Fat Free Cr Mushroom Soup to help lighten this recipe up and baked it at 375 degrees. Although you don't need to stir this, I'd suggest to go ahead. I did not stir and had a few crunchy grains of rice. I will be making this again thank you for posting.
