Re: The "~$5 Meal Ideas~" thread...
This is one of my favorites. Cheap and 1 pot cooking!
Beef and rice
1lb ground beef $1.99
2 cups white rice
4 cups water
2 chicken bulion cubes
1 small onion
5-6 cloves of garlic (or garlic powder would work too)
1 teaspoon cinnamon (sounds weird, but is really good!
Brown the ground beef in a large stock pot with the garlic and oinions. drain the fat. Add cinnamon. Dissolve chicken bullion in 4 cups HOT water, pour over beed onion and garlic mixture. Add rice and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, cover and let sit for 20 minutes or until rice is done.
This makes alot of food!
