This is a favorite. The whole family loves it. My local grocery store doesn't carry the Zatarain's Spanish Rice so I use the Rice-a-Roni brand. Rice-a-Roni makes more so I increase the water to 2 cups. Also I use the diced tomatoes with green chiles to add a little kick. Lastly I always use closer to 2 pounds of steak it doesn't require any changes to the rest of the recipe. Read More
