Cheeseburger Rice1 pound ground beef
1/2 small onion diced or 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2-1/2 cups water**
1/2 cup ketchup
2 Tablespoons prepared mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
Few cracks black pepper
3/4 cup INSTANT brown rice (if you want to use instant white use 1.5 cups each rice and water)
1/2-1 cup shredded cheese
This can be made two ways. You can start with raw beef cooked with the onion and drained or here I had already precooked hamburger and used onion powder. Add rest of ingredients except cheese and stir.
Bring to boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes for brown rice. Watch the water and add any if needed. Test rice and cook until tender. If you use white rice bring to boil and cover and let set for 5 minutes until rice is tender.
Turn off heat, sprinkle on cheese
and place lid on top to melt cheese.
**Amount of water correlates with the directions on your box of rice. I found out through a friend who made this dish that not all rices are created equal! Her rice required less water than mine and she had to cook it longer to get the liquid out.
