Cheesy Beef and Rice

Audra from West Virginia sent us this yummy recipe!

I found this recipe on a blog I read called Heavenly Home Makers. I have not tried it yet, but it looks easy, yummy, healthy, and it is able to be made ahead and frozen!

Cheesy Beef and Rice

1 cup long grain brown rice
1 lb ground beef
3 T. minced onion, or fresh chopped onion
1/2 t. garlic powder
sea salt, to taste
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup milk
1 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Boil two cups of water. Stir in rice. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Brown ground beef with onion and garlic powder. Mix with rice and salt well. Stir in sour cream and milk. Spread into a casserole dish. Sprinkle cheese on top. Cover well and freeze.

To bake: Thaw casserole on counter all day. Place uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes, or until bubbly.

I recently made this for dinner....and it's VERY bland!!! It pretty much just tastes like rice and beef mixed together. We weren't fans of it, to say the least!!

Dear Anonymous,
Thanks for letting us know. I know that Audra said she hadn't tried it yet. Any thoughts on what could be added to it to make it taste better?
