Today I had ground beef thawed out. I had been thinking off and on all day about what i wanted to do with it. By dinnertime i still hadnt decided, so i decided to just throw things together, and hope foro the best. I went to the garden and picked 5 carrots, and a medium sized onion.. cut some oregeno leaves, and some parsley.... decided id just go with it. This particular recipe i was able to keep trying it until it tasted just right.. and boy did it turn out delicious.. It took about 35 minutes, but that was only because i was trying to feed two babies, cook, and all the other fun stuff that comes up while youre trying to do something with 2 kids!
Its another one skillet meal i have named: Throw it in the pan!
3 large carrots sliced pretty thin, (I had about 5 smaller ones from the garden because our garden carrots havent gotten THAT big due to be planted so close together)
1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion
2 cups of instant white rice
2 beef bullion cubes, or 2 cups of beef broth
2 cups of water if using bullion cubes
good sprinkle of oregeno
good sprinkle of parsley
1) put ground beef, carrots and onions into skillet until hamburger is brown. Drain pretty good to get the excess grease off. Return to skillet
2) add rice, oregano, parsley, 2 beef bullion cubes, and two cups of water to skillet, stir VERY good often
3) you might need to add a little more water if all the water gets absorbed before the rice gets good and done
4) once all rice is done, sprinkle with salt to taste, and stir really good.. and walla..
We are really big rice eaters, so everyone in this house loved this meal. Bryleigh especially. I can always judge a meal on if bryleigh sits in her highchair saying NUM NUM NUM after every bite. She even ate the onions lol
