i have no idea what this would be called, but my dad just started making it and now i never go a day without eating any of it.

all it is, is brown rice with ground beef, and spaghetti sauce.

you will need about 3 lbs ground beef, 1 lb 10oz spaghetti sauce jar, 2x 14oz boxes of brown rice, and a 6oz can of tomato paste

(makes enough to last a week, if you dont want this much, use half of everything)

first fry up your ground beef.. cook the rice (seperate pot).. add in a jar of spaghetti sauce (with ground beef when fully cooked) then take your empty spaghetti sauce jar and dump in the tomato paste.. fill all the way up with water and shake the hell out of it until completely mixed, then dump that in with the beef, then just make sure the rice is done, mix it in with the rest and... VOILA!!

Me being an Italian I think I'd be committing some sort of heinous blasphemy if I mixed pasta sauce with rice. Meh, maybe I'll give it a shot.

I used onions and green peppers, love it!

Yea i think I'm going to try ground chicken next time, just b/c I don't need all this sat. fat.

Does every supermarket have that?

You could probably add them all up in a lump sum in the beginning and divide it up based on how many servings it made.


Well for next time anyways.

I don't really eat brown rice anymore...but butter, salt, and pepper is all I'd need

My roommate is peurto rican and I've had this dish at his grandma's before...also try stuffed peppers with that as a filler...good stuff

I was about to say this was very close to Spanish Rice.

(Puerto Rican here)

Just made a batch...used groundmeat, brown rice, italian diced tom., pasta sauce, basil, and garlic powder

Turned out pretty good...I am a fan,,,awsome to just heat up when you don't feel like cooking

if you want to count the calories, try cooking the beef, rice and spaghetti sauce seperately

mix the tomato paste + water with the spaghetti sauce, then when you want to eat it, heat up a skillet and measure out how much of each you want. should be a bit more accurate than mixing and divi-ing it up
