Beefy, Cheesy Rice Skillet

I really like to keep dinner as simple as possible, no matter what the occasion is. It’s not that I don’t love cooking. I love spending time in the kitchen and experimenting with food. But when I know I don’t have a lot of time to cook, and I have hungry mouths demanding to be fed, simple is the best way to go.

Simple dinners may be easy, but they can be fabulous too. Just look at this Beefy, Cheesy Rice Skillet. It doesn’t take a lot of effort or time to make, but it’s definitely filling and delicious.

This Beefy, Cheesy Rice Skillet is a one-pan dish consisting of rice, ground beef, tomatoes and mushrooms cooked in a soup base and topped with cheese. This dish requires only four steps to cook, requires only one pan for cooking and is ready in half an hour. Dinners don’t get any easier than that. This homey recipe is from Mique of Thirty Handmade Days.
