This recipe only requires a few ingredients and is easy to prepare.
1 package (6.8 ounces) beef-flavored rice mix
1 egg, beaten (I use egg whites only)
1 pound ground beef, lean
2-1/2 cups boiling water
Set contents of rice seasoning packet aside. In a bowl, combine the rice and beaten egg. Add beef and mix well. Shape into 1 inch balls. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the meatballs on all sides. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the reserved seasoning packet and boiling water. Add to skillet; cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until the rice is tender. About 8 servings for around $4 for the entire recipe or 50 cents a serving.
I have also done this with ground chicken & ground turkey using the chicken rice mix.
Thank you. I was looking through an old cookbook I bought at the thrift store and came across another. I couldn't believe the timing. It's funny because the title of the page says "When the Pocketbook's Pooped" haha
