  • 1 pound ground sirloin

  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped

  • 1 cup finely diced onion

  • 1 (29 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth

  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme

  • ¼ teaspoon dried sage

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup white rice


  1. 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.

  2. Add green pepper and onion; cook and stir until onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.

  3. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, broth, thyme, and sage; season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until peppers are tender, about 30 to 45 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  5. Stir cooked rice into soup; heat through and serve.
