porcupines skillet

 I have adapted this recipe from similar I have seen and made to be a bit more healthy.  You can substitute ground turkey for the beef as well if you like. This is a SUPER QUICK weeknight meal that is crowd pleasing and you can feel good about what you are feeding your family!


1 lb. ground beef
1 package of onion soup mix (near the salad dressing dry mixes in most stores)
1 1/2 c. hot water
1  c. uncooked brown rice
1 can tomatoes (15-16 ounces) of organic diced tomatoes
1 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese


1.  In a large skillet on medium, crumble your pound of ground beef and brown it.

2.  Once browned, stir in the onion soup mix, the water,  brown rice and can of tomatoes.  Stir it up.
3.  Cover the skillet and cook the dish on low heat for 25-30 minutes or until the rice is tender.
4. Once the rice is tender, sprinkle the dish with cheese,  allow it to melt and serve warm!
