I hope you give it a try. It is a great meal for picky eaters I find. If you have all the ingredients on hand you can have supper in 15 minutes. Dead serious, maybe even less. I do not count salt, pepper or seasonings as ingredients by the way, just in case you wondered!
1 lb ground beef
1 envelope onion soup mix
3 cups instant rice (uncooked)
3 cups good beef broth (I like low sodium)
1 tbsp. parsley (optional)
1 tbsp. onion powder (optional)
1 tbsp. garlic powder
In a large pot, add in ground beef and any veggies you choose, IF you choose. Pepper and lightly salt the beef to taste. If you use a high fat content hamburger, drain the grease at this point, but do NOT rinse. If you use lean ground beef, just leave it. Add in the beef broth, onion soup mix, onion powder and parsley. Bring to a boil, add the rice, cover and remove from heat. Wait 5-7 minutes and fluff with a fork. Enjoy!
