Seasoned Beef & Rice

I absolutely love the Whole Grain Ready Rice line from Uncle Ben's, my favorite in particular is the Sante Fe medley. It has black beans and corn and has a little kick to it. I browned up some lean ground beef to add to the rice blend and it was a really quick and easy dinner (and made great leftovers for lunch!).



Seasoned Beef & Rice
Makes 3 servings

1 package Uncle Ben's Ready Rice Sante Fe rice medley
10 ounces extra lean ground beef (93% lean)
1 tsp. Lawry's seasoning salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp. Dijon-style mustard

Prepare rice according to package directions.

Meanwhile, spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Season ground beef with seasoning salt and garlic powder. Heat skillet over medium heat. Add seasoned ground beef and cook until browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes. Drain away any fat. Return beef to the skillet.

Add ketchup and Dijon-style mustard to beef in skillet and mix well. Heat over low heat until heated through, stirring often, about 3 minutes. Add cooked rice medley to beef in skillet. Mix well and serve.
(Each serving is 6 pts.)
