    Calories are wrong since the rice calories are based on cooked rice, but the recipe calls for uncooked rice. That will add at least double the rice calories if not more, since brown rice more then doubles when cooked. - 5/5/10

    pretty good! would make it again but definately needs more water in order for the rice to cook. I also added a bit of garlic to give it more flavor - 3/17/10

  • I think this make 8-half cup portions, not 1 cup portions, which may make more sense for the calories given - 2/29/12

  • A very good recipe! I used double the broth and probably could have used a bit more to finish the rice. - 8/24/10

  • does anyone know if the rice is included in the calorie calculation? I don't think it is because a 1/2 cup cooked rice is 200 cals... - 4/27/10

  • Wonderful flavor and very easy to make. We added some diced tomatoes and a little shredded cheese...so good! - 1/6/10

  • I made a few variations as well. Instead of the mushrooms I used a can of mixed veggies, and I used 2 cans of chicken broth. I also used a little soy sauce for added flavor, and after it was all cooked, I sprinkled some shredded cheese. - 10/4/09

  • I made it, but used chicken broth since I was out of veg. beef and decided to add 1 can black-eyed peas. Smells great! I think it will also taste great! Thanks for the recipes that are ingredients most of us have in our pantry! :D - 9/1/09

  • How is the rice cooked? Is it in the mixture or separate? When do you add the rice? How does that add to the calories? If you cook the rice seperate and spoon beef mixture over how much rice do you use as a serving? Thanks. - 8/6/09

  • We loved this! I will definitely make it again. By the way, I added 2 or 3 dashes of worcestershire ~ yummy! - 6/30/09

  • Since I didn't have any broth, I decided to add 7 oz of water and 7 oz of marsala cooking wine, and a dash of rosemary. It's very good! I love this :-) Except, the rice didn't cook enough so add a bit more water to your meal and let it cook a little longer. I'd say about 3 or 4 more minutes. - 6/29/09

  • I thought this was pretty good,I added some cheddar cheese also towards the end - 5/27/09

  • This is good. I like the fact that it's different. When I have ground beef, I often resort to making goulash, which I find very boring. This is a nice change of pace and an inexpensive meal, even if my kids won't eat mushrooms. - 4/8/09

  • This was good. I added broccoli and cauliflower with it and the worchestershire as suggested. It was a little lacking for me as well until I did that. But a great meal for the calories! - 3/15/09

  • I live alone and love recipes I can cut down easily. A little lacking in flavor for me so I added a dash a worchestershire and some diced green peppers I had on hand. To increase the fiber I threw in some chopped broccoli I had. - 2/15/09

  • Super simple recipe. My kids were excited to eat it. Very tasty even though it doesn't seem like there would be enough seasoning. - 8/21/08
