Cheeseburger Rice casserole

November 24, 2012

Here’s a recipe that at first glance, seemed weird to me–the ingredients didn’t exactly sound like they went together. But I gave it a try anyhow, because I was desperate to use ground beef in a new and exciting way. And trust me on this–IT’S SO GOOD! It baked up perfectly, full of flavors that compliment each other in a delicious way. Not weird at all. My kids devoured this and so did I. Thanks to allrecipes.com for this keeper.

1 cup brown Basmati rice, uncooked
1 medium white onion, diced
3 medium carrots, grated
1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef, uncooked, crumbled
1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
2 teaspoons kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 cups V8 juice
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
2 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded


  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray a 9×13 glass baking dish with Pam cooking spray.
  • Into that pan, layer rice, onion, carrots, beef and green pepper.
  • Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
  • Combine tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce and basil in a separate bowl.
  • Pour over the top.
  • Sprinkle with cheese.
  • Cover tightly with tin foil and bake 1 1/2 hours or until rice is tender.
