Beef & Mushroom Rice Ingredients

The Engineer and my dad love, and I do mean LOVE, rice.  There is no end to the number of nights they will request it to round out a meal.  They love it plain, brown, fried, short or long.  But there is no comparison to the way they go on and on about a rice dish loaded with all the good things that satisfy the soul.
