Are you looking for an easy filling recipe suitable for all the family? This beef and rice bowl is filling, flavoursome, healthy and can also be made with vegetarian mince if preferred.
What makes this beef and rice bowl recipe great on a healthy eating plan
This recipe includes a good amount of vegetables due to the peppers and passata so you are sure to get enough vegetables for the meal easily. If you fancy you can always add extra peppers, more onions or add some mushrooms too.
Another way of adding extra vegetables is to add a handful of salad to your bowl, personally though I don’t think this is necessary.
How to make this recipe in 25 minutes
If you want to make this recipe in 25 minutes (after 5 minutes preparing the vegetables) then the first step is to put the rice on to boil.
Use my foolproof rice method if you are not confident is guaranteed to make fluffy boiled rice with ease.
Stir the frying pan well as it cooks to prevent sticking and ensure it is cooking evenly.
Drain any excess water from the mince mixture and then add the rice to the pan and stir thoroughly.
If the rice has been cooked a while or you are using pre-cooked and defrosted rice then heat until everything in the pan is hot.
Adaptions to the recipe
Add 1 tsp chilli powder for a spicy option.
If you prefer turkey mince to beef mince this recipe can easily be made with turkey mince, or even a vegetarian mince if preferred.
Using the perfect mince in this recipe
This recipe works well with both frozen and fresh mince. It is entirely up to you which you use. I tend to use frozen mince as it is cheaper and when it is cooked is just as good. The only difference I have found with frozen mince is that it does not mould as well if making burgers or doner kebab meat.
