Quick and Flavorful Rice Delight with a Beefy Twist

Ingredients & Substitutions

Meat: Opt for a pound of ground beef as the star of this casserole. Feel free to switch things up by substituting ground turkey or using a blend of the two. Ground chicken or sausage could also make interesting alternatives—just ensure the meat is cooked before adding it to the casserole.

Rice: Choose long-grained white rice, such as jasmine or basmati, for optimal results. Their ability to separate when cooked adds a delightful texture to the dish, unlike medium or short-grained rice, which tends to stick together.

French Onion Soup: Utilize a can of condensed French onion soup for that rich, savory flavor.

Beef Consommé: Opt for condensed beef consommé to infuse a robust taste. In a pinch, beef broth or beef stock can be substituted.

Butter: Divide a stick of butter into pats and evenly distribute them over the rice mixture before cooking, adding a luxurious touch to the casserole.
