Beefy Rice Skillet

This is one of those throw together dinners that turned out delicious. It also fed us for a few days which was a plus. So it will serve a family of 4 easily with a side salad. I served mine with steamed cabbage.

400-500g ground beef (Or 1lb)
1-2 small courgettes (zucchini)
1 onion
2 cloves garlic
½ red pepper
1 can crushed/chopped tomatoes
1 c white rice
2 cups water
1 tbsp. oil
1 beef bouillon cube
1 tsp. cumin powder
1 tsp. chili powder
*TINY* pinch cinnamon (it brings out the flavor, don’t overdo it ;)

To Start:
Dice onion, red pepper, courgettes, garlic; set aside.

To cook:
Heat a large skillet with oil and brown the beef.
Add the veggies and sauté for about 5 minutes.
Next add the rice and the seasonings and cook for 5 minutes being careful not to burn the rice.
Add the can of tomatoes and water; bring to a boil then turn down to low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
