what you'll need

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb extra-lean ground beef
  • 1 medium yellow onion finely diced
  • 3 bell peppers seeded and diced large
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 14.5 oz can tomatoes petite, diced, with juices
  • 14.5 oz can beef broth or chicken broth
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 tsp beef bouillon or chicken bouillon
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning or oregano
  • 1 cup white long grain rice uncooked
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese shredded

let's do it

  • Place a large skillet with a tight fitting lid over medium-high heat then add olive oil. When the oil is hot, add ground beef and cook 5–7 minutes, breaking into small pieces as it browns.
  • Add onions, bell peppers and garlic in with beef; stir to combine. Once the peppers have started to soften and the onions are translucent, carefully drain excess grease from skillet.
  • Return to stove reducing heat to medium. Stir in diced tomatoes with juice, broth, tomato sauce, bouillon, Worcestershire sauce and Italian seasoning.
  • Bring to a boil then stir in uncooked rice. Return to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 25 minutes, or until rice is tender.
  • Remove skillet from heat, stir lightly to fluff up the rice, sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese and replace the lid. Allow the casserole to rest, covered, for about 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

One Last Thing

Bell peppers can be pricey, so look for them on sale. If you don’t find a good deal, just buy the green ones. They’re half the price of the yellows, reds and oranges!
