My kids are very picky eaters. They are are now nearly grown and they are still picky eaters. It’s kind of annoying actually. But it’s because of their pickiness that once in a while I come up with a meal that they want all the time. It’s so simple and easy to throw together. When they asked what I was cooking for dinner I couldn’t think of what it was without listing all the ingredients so I just called it a rice concoction and the name stuck. So here it is . . . A Rice Concoction.

Bring 2 cups of white rice, 4 cups of chicken stock, and 2 TBS of margarine to a boil. Stir, then lower the heat and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed.

Meanwhile, season 1 pound of ground beef with salt and pepper and cook in a skillet over medium high heat.

Stir in 1 cup each of frozen peas and corn and cook until vegetables are heated through.

Combine the beef mixture with the cooked rice.
