Spanish Beef and Rice

A New Comfort Food Classic

One-pot meals with ground beef are a staple in many households, including my own.  Quite simply, it’s an inexpensive way to feed a whole lot of mouths.  This recipe spices things up a bit, but don’t worry, the heat isn’t too much for kids.

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 pounds ground sirloin

1 large yellow onion, chopped

1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained

1 (16-ounce) jar chunky salsa

2 green bell peppers, seeded and chopped

1 cup long-grain rice

1 cup chicken stock or broth

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 tablespoons chili powder

11/2 teaspoons cumin

11/4 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Place olive oil and ground sirloin in a large skillet over medium-high heat, browning well, about 5 minutes.  (You can also do this right in the crock of many modern slow cookers by using the cooker’s browning function.)

When meat is almost browned, drain off any excess fat, return to heat, and add onions, just until they sweat. 

Transfer beef and onions to a slow cooker and cover with remaining ingredients, stirring to combine.

Set the cooker to LOW, cover, and let cook 8 hours, or until rice is tender.  Serve as is, or topped with shredded cheese and sour cream, if desired.

Make It Different

Any ground meat can be used in place of the sirloin in this recipe—feel free to buy whatever happens to be on sale!
