Reviews for Beefy Rice Dinner
"I confess to not having made this in a number of years now; but when my kids were little and I was a full-time working mom of 3, I used this one a LOT. ALL of my kids gobbled it up; in fact, most of the time, I doubled the recipe to make sure I had enough. I didn't always use the shredded cheese, though. It's good enough without but put it on if you like! Thanks Mildred for this recipe and years of cooking this recipe!!"
