  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the ground beef, stirring constantly to break it up into fine pieces. When the beef is no longer pink, add the onion, and continue cooking until the onion has softened, and the beef has browned, about 5 more minutes.

  • Drain excess grease from the beef, then season with pepper flakes, parsley, oregano, and garlic powder. Stir in beef broth, mushroom soup, corn, and rice. Cook for a few minutes to warm, then pour into a casserole dish.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes, then sprinkle with Cheddar cheese, and continue baking for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.

I am a comfort food casserole fan and this recipe fits the bill on both counts. The spice choices are excellent especially the red pepper flakes which provide just the right level of bite. I only had enough cheddar cheese to cover half of the hash so I used a couple of pepper jack slices to cover the rest. Honestly the pepper jack side was better (of course I ate some from BOTH sides whaddayathink!)because it compliments and continues the red pepper flake theme. I don't see any reason for the rice to be "cold." The rice I used was still warm and it worked great. Thanks for a great down-home recipe! Read More

Not bad was looking for a way to use up the canned goods in my pantry as well as ground beef in my freezer as i have been cooking more healthfully lately. This was not healthy but tasted alright reltavively bland added extra red pepper flakes also used fresh garlic rather than garlic powder. It fit the bill as a quick meal using up my ingredients. Would make it again if i was in the same situation but definitely would not plan this as a meal. Read More

This was way better than I expected! I made it just because I had a pound of ground beef I wanted to use up and needed a quick dinner. I would have given it 5 stars but I think it was just a little bland - needed some salt and pepper and maybe a little heavier on the oregano and parsley. Read More

This is a very good easy recipe. The only changes I made were to use 3 cloves fresh garlic with the onions and Minute brown rice that was cooled. also I omitted the corn. My wife is a very picky eater and loved this. Will become a regular meal in our house. Read More

I cooked the onion with the beef; I added the seasonings to the beef and onion while cooking...I did add a little salt...wasn't enough in my opinion. Next time I'll change the garlic powder to garlic salt. I used a 14oz. can of Green Beans 1 C of shredded Monterrey Jack which I think went well with the dish. I will increase the cayenne pepper flakes to 1 t. and maybe use Pepper Jack cheese instead. I liked eating it as a dip with Tostitos. Read More

My husband and I loved this recipe. I used half the oregano called for because neither of us are huge fans of the taste. Next time (and there will definitely be a next time) I will also cut the red pepper in half since it was a little spicy for my kids. Loved it! Read More

Not terrible but not great either. I used "homemade chicken broth" from this site in place of the beef broth. I always use brown rice. I upped the garlic powder and decreased the oregano (our personal preference). Next time I'll toss in some green pepper (or red) and replace the cheddar cheese with velveeta. There is real potential here. Read More
