I'm not much of a cook, but I did receive many recipe requests the first time I made this dish. Using a packaged rice mix makes it so simple to prepare.—Deborah Vahlkamp, Belleville, Illinois

This was great!

This is a great recipe because it is simple, quick and delicious! It's adaptable too for what one has on hand. I didn't have the beef rice so I added an envelope of Lipton Beef & Onion Soup mix to the cooking water for instant white rice. And a dash of Worchestershire sauce for a little extra flavor! This is a good recipe to keep on hand for nights when you nneed a quick, easy dinner.

I do something very similar to this, I use stew meat and I have no leftovers. I usually cut up a roast myself to help cut costs.
