Beef Casserole

This recipe comes to us courtesy of Rose Krebs.  She recently tried it because it’s relatively quick and easy.

Ingredients:

  • ½ pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 cup green pepper, cubed
  • 3 ½ cups tomatoes, diced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup uncooked rice, preferably brown
  • 1 ½ cups water

Cooking Instructions:

  1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef and drain fat.
  2. Add rest of ingredients and stir to combine.
  3. Cover and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce to low heat and simmer for 35 minutes.
  5. Serve.

Notes:

  • If you don’t want to use beef, substitute ground turkey or chicken, reducing the grams of fat.
  • For more color, add some chopped yellow and red peppers
  • Feel free to add other herbs or spices
  • The original recipe uses white rice.  Brown rice would be healthier and add more fiber.
  • Also, if you want to add more flavor, use stock instead of the water.  But be careful with the sodium content.  Trader Joe’s has cooking stock with a very low sodium content.
