Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the beef and all of the onion (or shallot); cook and stir about 5 minutes or until the beef is browned. Remove from the skillet. Add the remaining beef; cook and stir about 5 minutes or until the beef is browned. Return all the beef to the skillet. Stir in tomatoes, broth, thyme, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes or until desired consistency.

  • Meanwhile, cook rice mix according to package directions. Serve the beef mixture over the rice. If desired, sprinkle with Parmesan and/or crushed red pepper.


Tip: If time allows, freeze the beef for about 30 minutes or until partially frozen to allow for easier slicing.
