This easy to make recipe from the Beef Council is an easy to make one pot dish that has a delicious Cajun kick to it. We’re only using green peppers in this recipe, but you can add additional vegetables like red peppers, jalapeno peppers (if you like it extra spicy!), carrots and onions to the recipe as well. Just chop them up and add them when you add the green pepper. Seasoning the ground beef with your favorite Cajun seasoning is another way to add more flavor to the dish if you like a bit more “Creole Kick” in your food. Let us know what you think of this recipe and if you made any additions in the comments below. Enjoy!
- 1 lb Leahy’s Angus Ground Beef
- 1 Green Bell Pepper (chopped)
- 1 package Cajun-style Rice
- 1 can Diced Tomatoes (drained)
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and when the pan is hot, add the ground beef. Cook the ground beef for 8 minutes, breaking it into crumbles while you are cooking.
Pour off the drippings from the ground beef and stir in the rice mixture, along with the amount of water that is indicated on the rice cooking directions. Do not add butter or oil, even if the rice mixture calls for it. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat, cover and cook according to the time indicated on the rice package.
After 5 minutes of cooking, add the chopped green pepper to the rice and ground beef mixture and stir it into the mix. Cover and continue cooking according to the time indicated on the rice package.
Once rice is done cooking, stir in the tomatoes. Cook over medium heat until the tomatoes are heated (2-4 minutes) while stirring occasionally to mix everything together.
Serve the mixture together and enjoy!
