  • 3 cups broth
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 1.5 pounds (lbs) ground beef
  • 1 heirloom tomatoes chopped
  • 2 cups long grain brown rice raw
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • pepper to taste
  • salt to taste

  • Procedure

  • Heat olive oil in a pan. Sauté garlic and onion 2 to 3 minutes. Add bell pepper and cook for 2 to 3 more minutes and allow to soften slightly.
  • Add beef and season with salt and pepper.
  • Add rice and cook until rice turns translucent but not brown (a few minutes).
  • Add broth. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed (around 20 minutes).
