One-Pot Beefy Broccoli Rice


One-Pot Beefy Broccoli Rice



2 lbs. ground beef (ground round or sirloin works great)

1 onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

1 tsp creole seasoning

3 cups warm water

2 tsp beef bouillon granules or 2 cubes

2 cups rice

1 lb. frozen cut broccoli

1/2 can mild Rotel

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or Colby Jack

Optional: fresh parsley


Brown beef with onions and garlic. Season with creole seasoning as you start to brown it.

While meat is browning, mix warm water with bouillon granules and let sit.

Once beef is browned and onions are clear, add bouillon mixture, rice, broccoli, and Rotel. Stir.

Bring it to a boil and then cover and reduce heat to low.

Cook for 20 minutes. Do not lift lid during this time. Stir and check to see if rice is done. If not, add a little more water, cover and cook a little longer.

Taste and season a little more if you prefer.

Top with cheese, cover, and let cheese melt. Serve with a little fresh parsley.
