Progresso Broth

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Progresso™ beef broth
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked instant brown rice
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced (1 cup)
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 pound beef top round steak, trimmed of fat and cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup fresh snap pea pods, strings removed
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Steps

  • 1
    Heat broth to boiling in 2-quart saucepan. Stir in rice and carrots. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 6 to 8 minutes or until carrots are crisp-tender; remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook beef and onion in oil about 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is brown and onion is tender. Stir in cooked rice mixture, pea pods, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  • 3
    Cover and cook about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, just until pea pods are tender. (Add a small amount of water to mixture if it becomes dry before pea pods are tender.)

  • You can use fresh or frozen peas instead of snap peas.
  • All the prep work can be done ahead of time and the ingredients wrapped in plastic and refrigerated. Cut carrots and wrap separately. Cut and wrap beef and onion together.
  • Add slices of provolone cheese over the top of the skillet after the pea pods are done. Remove skillet from the heat, and cover and let stand 1 to 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
