This is really good with any beef meal, such as meat loaf or fried hamburgers. To prepare it get out a 1-quart saucepan. Add the oil and rice. Heat at a medium-high temperature. Fry the rice for 2 or 3 minutes, or until it’s toasty and slightly opaque. Add the remaining ingredients. Bring them all to a rolling boil. Affix the lid. Reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes and serve hot.

To Use Brown Rice: Replace the white rice with an equal amount of brown rice. Cook for 45 minutes instead of 20.
To Add Ground Meat: Fry half a pound of ground beef or ground turkey in a 10-inch skillet with a good lid. Omit the oil. When the meat is well browned add the rice and stir it about for a couple of minutes. Add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Cover; reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
