In the Kitchen with Jason: Cheesy Ground Beef Rice Casserole


We found the original recipe on HungryLittleGirl.com, but doctored it up so much you probably wouldn't recognize it if you saw it there.

Ingredients
  • 1 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 small can tomato sauce
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 2 cups shredded cheese, divided
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup sour cream
 Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a large oven safe skillet, cook ground beef, onion, garlic, pepper and oregano over high heat until the beef is fully cooked.
  • Turn the heat down to medium and add the rice, peas, and tomato sauce, 1 cup of cheese and the chicken broth.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer for 3 minutes.
  • Bake for 15 minutes
  • Combine remaining cheese and sour cream.
  • Top the casserole with cheese and sour cream mixture and bake another 15 minutes.
This was a surprisingly good recipe. We made a lot of changes to this recipe so feel free to change it up to fit your wants as well, such as adding broccoli instead of peas, more or less rice,and any additional seasonings that you may want.

Just be prepared to want to eat a whole bunch more of this than you probably should because it is yummytastic!

Please enjoy!

Chef Jason
