Beef and Rice Skillet Meal
Doesn't everyone have an Aunt Bee? This beef and rice skillet meal is just the kind of dish you know you would get from her house. Warm and filling and just the right blend of comfort food. Aunt Bee would push you to eat more and you would leave her house with kisses and feeling so stuffed you thought you would never eat again. That is, until Aunt Bee invited you over for dinner the next time. This dish is that kind of yummy and fun eats that everyone always enjoys and feels good after eating.
This recipe suggests that you use a pre-packaged rice dish such as Uncle Ben's variety. There is quite a range of rice combinations available this way. They are handy to have on hand when you are just too rushed to make the full meal deal and they are tasty and delicious. In this recipe you could choose regular quick rice or even a multi-grain variety. Brown the meat and add the seasonings, serve with rice and this meal is good to go. It's a great meal because it also freezes well. It can be served at both lunch and dinner and is good to bring to BBQs or other friendly gatherings. Skillet meals are quick and delicious combinations to prepare for your family. A few onions, your favorite meat or fish, and a base of some liquid (it can be tomato, cream, vegetable stock and so on). Serve the result over noodles, with potatoes or rice, or even over toast, whichever is your family's favorite and you have a surprising balance of protein, carbs and fats. Making a meal that tastes good and is good for you is easier than you think.

This meal is high in iron, high in selenium, high in phosphorus, high in zinc and high in B vitamins. Sometimes we hesitate to use instant foods, but many quick foods today are carefully balanced and nutritious blends. Of course, it is probably better to make everything from scratch so you can entirely control what your family eats, but busy lives and being on the go all the time, makes that impossible. Using resources like minute rice can make your life a lot easier while still preparing filling and nutritious meals that your family will love.
