“Quick, simple supper. My 3 year old ate 6 servings, so I guess its kid friendly too. :) I used a very lean beef that didn't require draining, if you use a fatty meat you may want to drain it before step 3. If you don't want to use minute rice, you can double the water, use regular rice, and let it simmer about 7 minutes longer.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dice onion (I like large chunks, you may prefer it smaller.)
  2. In a medium sized pot, brown ground beef, with onion. (Add a clove or two of garlic if desired.).
  3. When the beef is done, add the peas and carrots, and 2 1/2 cups of water. Let it reach a boil, and turn heat to medium.
  4. After about 5 minutes, add the minute rice, and an additional 1/2 cup of water if needed. Simmer for 5 minutes or so, until the rice and vegetables are tender.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste just before serving.
