Ingredients

 

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Chopped green onions for garnish

 

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet or Dutch oven, cook the ground beef over medium-high heat until browned and crumbled, about 5 minutes. Drain excess fat and transfer the cooked beef to a plate. Season with 1 tablespoon of Cajun seasoning.

  2. In the same skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.

  3. Add the diced onion, minced garlic, and diced bell pepper. Sauté for 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are tender.

  4. Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon of Cajun seasoning and the long-grain white rice. Toast the rice for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently.

  5. Pour in the beef broth and diced tomatoes (with their juices). Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

  6. Return the cooked ground beef to the skillet and stir everything together.

  7. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet with a lid, and simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the rice is tender and has absorbed the liquid.

  8. Remove from heat and let it stand for 5 minutes with the lid on.

  9. Fluff the rice with a fork and garnish with chopped green onions.

Enjoy the bold and spicy flavors of this Cajun-inspired beef and rice dish for a satisfying and flavorful meal.
