Savory Beef over Rice

Linda Kauppinen


After Hurricane Irma, I was daunted with the task to make a meal for two using a steak for one after we finally got our electricity turned back on after 4 days of being without it. Being that my sister is my new guinea pig, shes pickier than my son, and my son went off on his own, I set out to whipping this quick and easy meal up. It turned out to be a huge hit! Its full of good savory flavor, the beef pieces were tender and its one of those stick to your ribs kind of comfort food meals. I hope you enjoy it too!
