Ingredients

    36 ounces of ground bison

    5 cups of basmati rice (ok, 5 x 3/4 cups of rice because our rice cooker provides a "cup" that is only 3/4 of a cup)

    5 lines of water (rice cooker lines - bottom line here is follow your rice cooker's directions to achive 10 cups of cooked rice)

    1 cup of McCormicks Original Taco Seasoning

    2 cups of water

    2 cans of Ro'Tel tomatoes and diced green chiles (threw the cans away but i think they're about 6 oz )

    1 cup of beef or vegetable broth

Directions

Put the rice, 5 lines of water and can of Ro Tel in the rice cooker (don't worry about adjusting for the

liquid in the Ro Tel) and cook in accordance with your rice cooker's instuctions.

It is a brown rice and does take longer than white rice. I think the Ro Tel adds enough sodium

that you do not need to put salt in.



In a large frying pan, or deep pot, brown the bison. Bison is very lean and cooks faster than ground beef, so: (1) start at high and lower your heat as you cook. (2) Really no "fat" to drain off. McCormick instructions would have you add the seasoning after the meat is brown, you can. When meat was "semi-browned (about 7 minutes) I added two cups of water and stirred in Taco seasoning and the other can of Ro Tel. When this is about 3/4 cooked (14 minute mark) I remove from heat and set aside to cool.



Now, is this a make ahead of a serve soon?



Serve right now: Brown Rices in my slow cooker takes about 80-90 minutes. Start the rice and about the 60 minute mark start the bison. Stir the bison mixture into the rice, add cup of broth when the rice is done and put rice cooker on slow cook and serve when broth has become heated.



Make ahead - add broth the bison mixture, seal and store. Rice will keep in the cooker so turn it off. When at the service site, stir bison mixture into rice and put on slow cook (high) for approximately 1 hour.



Ok, I made 10 cups of rice because I left 3 cups of rice/bison mix for the kids...
