I'm constantly asked to make this tasty dish and why not? It is a hearty meal in itself, perfect for game day or when you don't want to spend all day in the kitchen. I will usually serve it with cheesy homemade garlic bread.

  • Transfer beef to a slow cooker. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, green bell peppers, water, onions, rice, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, and hot sauce. Cook on High until rice is tender, about 3 hours. Serve in bowls and top with Cheddar cheese.

Cook's Notes:

You can use beef chuck or sirloin instead of ground beef, if desired.

This can also be cooked on Low for 8 hours.

This was good, and it got eaten up entirely. I would've liked it better in the oven, but it was fine in the slow cooker. I could not get all the ingredients to fit in my "smaller" crockpot which I think is 3qt (the big is 6qt, I think) so I kept having to stir the rice a lot. In the end, the rice kind of melted by the 2nd day, and I think that's due to it being white rice in a slow cooker. I'm not really sure how to fix that other than to readjust the ratios significantly but I think it's doable if you don't think you will eat all this in one evening. It is fantastic for a large one-night meal, though. Read More

Made as written and this had really good flavor. The one thing I did not like is that the rice disappeared. I think it needs more rice which would require more liquid. Overall a good recipe and one I will make again with a couple of tweaks. Read More
