Nostalgic Beef and Rice Delight

Nostalgic Beef and Rice Delight

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground beef, browned and drained
  • 1 jar (24 oz/2.5 cups) tomato sauce
  • 1 jar of water (using the sauce jar)
  • 2.5 cups instant rice
  • Optional: 1 can (7 oz) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 2 tablespoons real butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Brown the Ground Beef:
    • In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until fully cooked. Drain excess fat and set aside.
  2. Prepare the Sauce and Rice:
    • In a large saucepan, bring the tomato sauce and a jar of water to a boil.
  3. Add the Rice:
    • Stir in the instant rice, ensuring it’s evenly distributed in the sauce. Cover the saucepan with a lid and reduce the heat to low.
  4. Simmer and Cook:
    • Allow the rice to simmer on low heat until it’s fully cooked. This typically takes about 15-20 minutes. Keep an eye on it to prevent sticking, and stir occasionally.
  5. Optional: Add Mushrooms:
    • If you’re feeling extra nostalgic, add the drained canned mushrooms to the rice and sauce mixture. Stir well to combine.
  6. Combine with Ground Beef:
    • Once the rice is cooked, add the previously browned and drained ground beef to the saucepan. Mix everything together until well combined.
  7. Season to Taste:
    • Season the dish with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning according to your preference.
  8. Finish with Butter:
    • For that extra touch of richness and nostalgia, stir in a healthy pat of real butter just before serving. This adds a creamy and indulgent flavor to the dish.
  9. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Spoon the nostalgic ’80s Beef and Rice Delight into bowls and savor the comforting flavors. Pair it with a side salad or your favorite vegetable for a complete meal.

This recipe is a throwback to the classic and simple meals of the ’80s, with a touch of personal nostalgia. Feel free to customize it further based on your preferences and enjoy the taste of the past!
