Beef and Rice One Skillet Meal

by Kay Curtiss
I love easy meals I can throw together quickly and taste good.  This one fits the bill.  It is a nutritious One Skillet Meal using Thrive FD Beef with several Thrive Vegetables,  Thrive Brown Rice and Thrive Espagnole Sauce.

1 1/2 cup Thrive FD Cooked Beef Dices
1 cup Thrive FD Green Beans
1/4 cup Thrive FD Green Chili Peppers
1/2 cup Thrive FD Cauliflower
1/4 cup Thrive FD Celery
1/4 cup Thrive FD Onions
3 Cups Water
1 T. Thrive Beef Bouillon
1/2 t. Thrive Peppercorn Blend
1/2 t. Rosemary (optional)
2-3 T. Olive Oil
1/2 T. Minced Garlic
1/2 c. White Wine (**or substitute-see below)
2 cups Thrive Instant Brown Rice
Meat/Veggie juice + water to make 2 cups
1/4 cup Espagnole Sauce
1/2 cup water


Put Beef and Veggies in bowl.  Mix 3 cups water, beef bouillon, peppercorn blend and rosemary.  Pour over beef and veggies to reconstitute, about 10 minutes, stirring 2-3 times.  Drain Beef mixture, reserving any extra liquid.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil.  Add minced garlic and saute for about 30 seconds.  Add drained Beef mixture and saute it the garlic for 2-3 minutes.  Add Beef mixture juice + water to 2 cups and bring to a simmer.

Add instant brown rice.  Cover and simmer 5 minutes.  Add 1/2 cup more water and 1/4 cup Espagnole Sauce.  Stir and then cover and simmer another 2-3 minutes until rice is tender.


Note:  You can mix any number of Thrive Vegetables in place of the Veggies used in this recipe, i.e., Zucchini, Asparagus, Broccoli, Tomato Dices, etc. would be good too.
