At my bridal shower, my bridesmaids had the coolest idea…since they know I love to cook, they had each person attending bring a recipe for me to try out on Jason. One of them was for Spanish Rice from my Aunt Diane.
I made a few modifications, such as using fresh parsley instead of dried and using whole grain rice instead of white rice. Overall, the recipe is good. The only thing Jason suggests is more spice, and I agree. I would probably add some cumin and chili powder.
◦ 1 pound ground meat, browned
◦ 1 celery stalk, thinly sliced
◦ 16 oz can stewed tomatoes
◦ 1/4 cup onion, diced
◦ ¾ ketchup
◦ 2 tbsp fresh parsley
◦ 1/8 tsp black pepper
◦ 1 cup Brown rice (uncooked)
◦ 2 cups water
Mix all ingredients together in a pan; cover and simmer for 3/4 of an hour to 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
