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.
And it’s obvious why this dish fits that bill. All those delicious mushrooms and the long grain rice simmers in a hearty beef broth seasoned with onion soup mix, soaking up as much golden rich flavor as they can hold! Add just the right amount of ground beef, and you’ve got a dish that do just about anything.
I love to serve this Beef & Mushroom Rice with a green salad and some perfectly buttered cornbread. But even more so, I love the silence that falls across the table as everyone digs in to meal that just tastes like home.

This is so delicious! Super easy to make & my husband loves it, too. I cooked some broccoli separately and added it once the rice was finished so it’s a whole meal in a bowl. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the great recipe!
