This is a quick one pot rice dish! B loved it and said it was one of his favorite rice dishes.
1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion -- chopped
2 cloves garlic -- minced
1 1/4 C uncooked rice
2 1/2 C water
1 C frozen or fresh vegetables (whatever you have on hand)
1 envelope of dry onion soup mix
3 Tbs soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
hot sauce and pepper to taste
Brown meat and drain well. Add chopped onion, garlic, rice, soup mix, soy sauce. Stir for a couple of minutes. Add water and sesame oil, hot sauce, and pepper. Bring to a boil and then cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is tender. When rice is tender, make a hole in the rice and pour in the frozen veggies. Cover with hot rice and cover the pot for ten minutes. If you use fresh veggies, you can boil them with the rice. Add chopped green onions prior to serving.
