Our favorite one-pot rice dish.

Direct from the Howdygram’s Test Kitchen, here’s a favorite recipe for Easy One-Pot Greek Rice that Sam and I really love. Give it a shot and let me know what you think!
  • 1½ lbs. lean ground beef
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1½ cups raw long-grain white rice
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1½ tablespoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons dried mint leaves
  • 4 cups water
  • juice of 5 lemons
Dump everything into a big nonstick kettle, stir to break up the ground beef, cover the pot and simmer for about 45 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. If you want softer rice throw in an extra half-cup of water. Doesn’t get much easier than this, does it? There’s enough here to serve at least six ... or two hungry people for three meals.
I highly recommend cake for dessert, but I’d probably eat cake with just about anything. Thank you for reading this.
