Fresh southwestern flavors make this extra-lean beef dish a tasty and simple solution to the “What’s for dinner?” question.
cups Progresso™ beef flavored broth (from 32-ounce carton)
cups uncooked orzo or rosamarina pasta (9 ounces)
can (11 ounces) Green Giant™ SteamCrisp® Niblets® vacuum-packed whole kernel corn, undrained
can (4.5 ounces) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles, undrained
teaspoons olive or vegetable oil
pound cut-up extra-lean beef for stir-fry
medium bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
cup chopped fresh cilantro
Mix broth, pasta, corn and chilies in 2-quart saucepan. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until pasta is just tender; remove from heat. Let stand about 5 minutes or until almost all liquid is absorbed.
While pasta mixture is cooking, spray 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add oil; heat over medium-high heat. Cook beef and bell pepper in oil about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown.
Stir beef mixture into pasta mixture. Stir in cilantro.
Orzo is a tiny pasta shaped like grains of rice. This mini-pasta is ideal for soups, casseroles and one-dish skillet meals.
Make it meatless by replacing the beef with a 15-ounce can of black beans, drained, and the beef broth with veggie broth.
