Latin Style Beef and Rice


I did not shop for tonight's meal. Again, I used what was handy at home.

Recipe for 4 Servings

2 cups cooked rice
1 lb. ground beef, preferably lean
2 Goya Sazon packets
Goya Adobo Seasoning (or salt and pepper) to taste
1 onion chopped
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 cup frozen cut green beans
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

In a heavy skillet that has been pre-heated, add olive oil, garlic and onions. Add the ground beef and brown well. Season with Adobo and Sazon. Add the riced and blend until rice is orange uniformly. Add the green beans and cover. Cook over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes.

I served this dish with friend ripe plantains and a cucumber salad that was seasoned with lemon juice, salt and olive oil.
