Easy Beef and Rice

When time is running short at dinnertime around our house, I rely on this microwave casserole. Convenience folds like canned soup and instant rice make it a fast-to-fix meal.—Doris Gill, Sargent, Nebraska


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup uncooked instant rice
  • 3 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Crumble beef into an ungreased 2-qt. microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 3 minutes or until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Cover and heat on high for 9-10 minutes or until rice is tender. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

    This was a great recipe. Needed something quick and easy and this was perfect. Had to substitute cream of broccali soup for the cream of celery (I was out) but everyone in the family absolutely loved it. Definately a new family favorite.
