Ground Beef Casserole with Brown Rice


My mother used to make this ground beef casserole for my brother and I when we were kids. Very filling. Takes well to additions and alterations.

1 9x13-inch casserole


  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  • 3 cups cooked brown rice

  • 2 cups frozen peas

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of celery soup

  • ¼ cup milk

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese blend, or to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. 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.

  3. Mix ground beef, brown rice, peas, soup, milk, soy sauce, and garlic together in a large bowl. Spoon into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Top with Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese. Cover the baking dish with a lid or foil.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

This freezes well so I like to make this when I do my OAMC. I put the mixture (without the cheese) into gallon-sized zip-top bags and freeze.
