Beef and Rice Skillet Recipe

Updated on December 5, 2016

A Family Tradition

This recipe was first introduced to me by my Grandfather. He would prepare it as a special treat for us on cold winter nights after he would get off work at the Ford factory assembling Explorers for 10 hours. Not only is this delicious it is also packed with protein and is nutritious. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
