  • 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

  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.
