Rice is twice as nice in this recipe—it’s a side and main dish in one!

Ingredients

1
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1
small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1
cup uncooked Arborio or regular long-grain white rice
3 1/2
cups Progresso™ beef flavored broth (from 32-oz carton)
1/2
cup shredded carrot
1/2
cup shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
3
tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Directions

  • 1 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef, onion, garlic and pepper over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain if desired. Stir in rice; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • 2 Stir in broth; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover; simmer 10 minutes.
  • 3 Stir in carrot. Cook uncovered 5 to 7 minutes longer or until liquid is absorbed.
  • 4 Remove skillet from heat. Stir in cheese. Cover; let stand 3 minutes. Sprinkle with chives.

Expert Tips

If you use regular long-grain white rice instead of the Arborio rice, the finished dish will be less creamy with more separate, distinct rice grains. The reason: regular white rice doesn't contain as much starch as Arborio rice does.

Serve this meaty risotto with a Caesar salad and French bread for an easy weeknight meal.
