Mix ground chuck and Rice-A-Roni. Form into small balls. Brown the balls in a skillet with 2 to 3 tablespoons of oil. Drain on a paper towel. Place in a large pot over the beef balls. Add to the mixture the seasonings packets from the Rice-A-Roni according packages to directions from Rice-A-Roni (about how much water). Allow to simmer for 30 minutes. Serve with rice or egg noodles.
