Ingredients

  • 1 cup Brown Rice
  • 1 1/2 lbs Extra Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Red Bell Pepper (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • 2 tsps Paprika
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt

  • 3 1/2 cups Crushed Tomatoes (from the can)

  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 6 stalks Green Onion (chopped, divided)

Instructions

  • Cook the rice according to the package directions.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the beef to the pan, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Once it is cooked through and no longer pink, transfer the meat to a plate and drain any excess drippings from the pan.
  • Add the oil to the same pot and cook the peppers for about 8 minutes until just tender. Add the browned beef back to the pot and season with with Italian Seasoning, paprika, salt and red pepper flakes.
  • Add the crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, water and half of the green onions. Bring to a gentle boil then let simmer for 25 to 30 minutes or until the peppers are very tender. Season with additional salt if needed.
  • To serve, divide the beef mixture and rice between bowls. Stir together and then top with the remaining green onions. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Leftovers

    Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days. This dish will thicken as it cools, so you may want to add a bit of water when you reheat it until your desired consistency is reached.
  • Serving Size

    One serving is approximately 1 1/3 cups of the beef mixture and 2/3 cups of the rice.
  • More Flavor

    Use garlic-infused olive oil instead. Make it spicier with more red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper. Make it smokier with smoked paprika or chipotle chili powder.
  • No Red Bell Pepper

    Use any colour of bell pepper instead.
  • No Beef

    Use ground pork or sausage meat instead.
  • No Brown Rice

    Use white rice, quinoa or cauliflower rice instead.
