Beef and Rice Bake

This dish is in no way fancy or trendy, but it is a staple at our house for a few reasons:
1. It is EASY! It takes about 15 minutes to put together, and then ya just throw it in the oven.
2. It is one of the cheapest meals I make. I usually have all the ingredients on hand, and if not- they don't cost much anyway.
3. As simple as this meal is sooooooo tasty. I usually eat half the pan whenever I make it...if I can get to it before my kids.
Try it, you'll like it!
