"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."
