This recipe comes to us from Valerie Wells.
1 pound lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 ribs celery, chopped
1 - 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 cup short grain brown rice
1 ½ cup water
¼ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350F. Brown beef in heavy flame proof Dutch oven. Stir in onions, garlic and celery and sauté for a few minutes. Add remaining ingredients and bring to boil. Cover and move to oven for 45 minutes.
You can probably make this with any kind of rice; just use the amount of water required for the type of rice youre using. Also, if you make it with white rice, reduce the cooking time in the oven to about 30 minutes.
