Recipe Tuesday – Daily Tip #85

RecipeTuesdayLast week I had planned to make tacos, but due to soccer we ended up eating out at a Mexican restaurant the night before, so I didn’t want to have Mexican food 2 nights in a row. So now I had all these random ingredients and nothing to do with them. So I made up this quick and easy recipe that the whole family enjoyed:

BEEF & RICE

1 lb ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp mustard powder
2 TBSP flour
2 c. beef stock
1 c. carrots, thinly sliced
1/2 c. frozen peas
2 c. rice

Cook rice according to the instructions on the package. I use a rice cooker and cook 2 cups of rice in 3 cups of water until done. Brown meat with onion. Then add flour, salt, black pepper, cayenne, and mustard powder. Mix well. Slowly add beef broth and cook until slightly thick, several minutes over medium heat. Add carrots and peas. Once the rice is done and carrots are tender, put rice in a bowl and top with ground beef and vegetable mixture.
