  • Add chicken broth and rice to the saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook until liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add pine nuts and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Mix pine nuts into rice and meat mixture before serving.

Chef's Notes:

You can also use lamb as a substitute for ground beef.
