Beef Rice Skillet Meal In No Time at All
Doesn't everyone have an Aunt Bee? This beef and rice skillet meal is just the kind of recipe 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 feel so stuffed you thought you would never eat again. That is until Aunt Bee invited you over for dinner the next time. This recipe is that yummy and fun meal that everyone always enjoys and feels good after eating. The good thing about this delicious beef and rice recipe is all the good ground beef nutrition and the nutritional value in beef that you get.
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.
