  • 1 lb. ground beef 90/10, or turkey
  • 2 Tbsp. oil avocado or olive oil
  • 1 small sweet onion finely diced
  • 2 bell peppers red and green, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 4 cups beef broth

  2. Add oil and diced onion. Saute for 2-3 minutes or until onions start to become translucent. Stir in bell peppers and continue sauteing for 3-4 minutes. Add in minced garlic, stirring constantly for 1 minute.
  3. Add beef back into the pot along with the broth, tomato sauce, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, dried herbs, nutmeg, bay leaves, salt, pepper, and rice.
  4. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Cover and let simmer for 25-30 minutes, or until the rice is tender.
