Of all the Central Asian countries, I imagine Kazakhstan is the most recognized. Mostly because of the movie Borat. Having never seen Borat, though, I could only smile and nod when I was inevitably told “Is nice?!?” when discussing making Kazakh food this weekend. But all of that aside, I was actually looking forward to this dinner because, well, apricots are always good! This dinner was simple, quick, and really tasty. Next time I might step outside of the traditional recipe and add some cayenne pepper, cinnamon, and fresh parsley to the pot. Aс болсын! (as bolsın – Bon Appetit in Kazakh.)
How To Make IT :
1 pound ground beef
1 box beef rice a roni
1 small can beef broth
Brown ground beef
Brown the rice as directed
Once rice is browned add 1 1/2 cups
hot water, 1 can beef broth and
brown ground beef.
Simmer 15 minutes. Yum
you can make that when you have.
Left overs. Like steak and rice a roni.
Or if you have chicken left over.
you can add cream mushroom soup-
half can rice- soy sauce and put in
crock pot, chow main noodles on
botton Also can use Spanish Rice-
a-Roni & hamburger. Add Rotel
tomatoes & 1 can of water & extra
seasonings to taste. Great dish to top
with cheese or sour cream
another idea is to make meatballs
with the rice mixture mixed in and
then brown the balls and once there
browned I pour in the alloted
amount of water and let simmer for
about 30 mins. They will look like
porcupines when done! So yummy
and a kids favorite qnd I have SUPER picky eaters!
you can Add a can of diced tomatoes
it makes it even better
