35-Minute Beef & Rice Skillet

This quick and easy one-pan meal can be prepped in about 35 minutes. It’s perfect for a fast lunch or weeknight dinner.



Step 1:

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a large pot. Add 2 cups of uncooked rice, cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes without removing the lid until the water is fully absorbed.

Step 2:

While the rice cooks, brown 1 pound of ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat for 8–10 minutes, breaking it up as it cooks. Drain excess fat.

Step 3:

After cooking, let the rice stand covered for 3 minutes; then arrange the rice in a ring on a serving platter and set aside.

Step 4:

Add 1 can of green beans, 1 can of corn, 1 can of tomato sauce, and 1 tablespoon of Cajun Joy to the skillet with the cooked ground beef. Cook over medium heat until heated through and steaming hot.

Step 5:

Spoon the beef and vegetable mixture into the center of the rice ring. Serve warm.
