My mother used to make this ground beef casserole for my brother and I when we were kids. Very filling. Takes well to additions and alterations.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 3 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of celery soup
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese blend, or to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease.
  3. 3 Mix ground beef, brown rice, peas, soup, milk, soy sauce, and garlic together in a large bowl. Spoon into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Top with Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese. Cover the baking dish with a lid or foil.
