My mom always called this Julia's revenge, in reference to Julia Child, because it only uses one pot and is so quick and easy.
1 lb. hamburger
1 medium onion, chopped
1 - 28 oz can stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 can corn, drained (optional)
1-1/2 cups uncooked white rice
2 to 2-1/2 cups water
salt and pepper to taste
shredded cheese, any kind
Brown hamburger and onion in a large pot. Drain. Drain tomato liquid into a 4 cup measuring cup. Add tomatoes to the pot and break up if necessary, also add corn if using ( Ialways use corn because we like it that way. Add enough water to tomato juice to measure 3 cups, pour into pot and bring to a boil. Add the rice and some salt and pepper (maybe 1/4 tsp pepper and 1/2 tsp salt to start, I don't know because I never measure it) and stir everything together. Reduce heat (low or med-low), cover and simmer 20-30* minutes until rice is done. Add more salt and pepper if necessary. Top with shredded cheese.
During cooking time, check occasionally to make sure rice isn't sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Happy New Year? - So sometimes we get our poem out on time. Sometimes we don't. We had this written by New Years, which isn't really on time, but better than say....the end ...
