Cheesy Ground Beef, Rice and Broccoli Skillet Recipe

Now that my daughter's in kindergarten, she is super hungry and ready to eat when we get home after school. Nights like these, I need something quick and easy to whip up. This recipe is perfect for that! Most of these ingredients or something similar, can be found in my pantry, fridge and freezer at all times. I prefer to make the cream soup from scratch, but sometimes after a long day it's simpler to just open a can. You can make this recipe either way!

The flavors go great together, and it's very hearty and filling. My daughter actually ate two bowls right away and loved it! I hope this recipe works great for your family, like it did for ours! Enjoy!

Cheesy Ground Beef, Rice and Broccoli Skillet (print recipe)

What you need:
1 pound lean ground beef
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1- 10 3/4 ounce can cream of chicken soup
1- 8 ounce can tomato sauce
2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
1 cup uncooked long grain white rice
2 cups water
2 cups fresh broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper, if desired

Brown ground beef, garlic and onions in a large skillet over medium high heat. Season with salt and pepper. 

Add cream soup, tomato sauce, worcestershire and mix well. Stir in rice and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, place broccoli in a microwave safe bowl, cover with water and heat for 4-5 minutes, or until broccoli is tender. 

When the rice is done and the liquid is absorbed, stir in broccoli and sprinkle cheese over the top. Cover and heat until cheese is melted.

  7. It sounds like a great dish. How cute is your daughter to be so hungry when she gets home from school? My son is the same way, only he's in 10th grade! Thanks for joining Foodie Friends Friday! Please come back on Sunday to VOTE!

  10. I know about super hungry kids my son is 13 and starving all the time and my 11 year old is the same way too. this is the kind of meal they will love.

  11. Looks good. I'm not a fan of the creamed soups but I've found you could substitute a cup of chicken broth and 4 oz. of cream cheese instead. Otherwise, YUMMY!
