It’s been awhile since I dropped a recipe in here, but I made this tonight after my mom and I talked about it this weekend and it was too good not to share:
1 cup Rice (I used a long grain blend tonight & it was fabulous, but basic white will do)
Beef broth in whatever quantity required for the rice – with my long grain it was 1.5 cups
1lb Ground Beef or Turkey
1 small onion chopped
1 small green pepper chopped
Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning (it’s the green container in the spice area)
Start the rice according to package directions- it is best NOT to use an instant or boil in the bag. No worries as it will cook up perfectly while you get the rest together. The key is to use the beef broth instead of water!!
While the rice is simmering, chop onion & pepper and cook in a frying pan with ground beef/turkey until the meat is cooked through. Drain & return to pan. Mix in the finished rice. Season to taste with the Creole Seasoning. Sprinkle it on like salt. Lightly at first, and then taste. It all depends on how much spice you can handle.
The boyfriend declared it delicious and I really loved it. 20 minutes from start to finish.
