doesnt work with regular rice unless precooked :-( but tasty once you get the rice done correctly

I loved this, and my family did as much that I made it again the next night. :) I wish the directions were a little more clear but I made due. I browned my meat, I used minute rice, I used a 9x13 pan covered with foil. Again it was so yummy!!!

This is a little different spin on an old family boys are extremely picky eaters, this is a simple yet flavorful way to please them all. The best part is you can always add vegetables or seasoning to taste and it will always come out great :-).

I wasn't sure about the ground beef so I browned it, drained it, then mixed it all. I'm pretty sure that's what you're supposed to do otherwise it'd be meatloaf, right? Anyway, it turned out really good this way so I'd recommend that.

I used turkey burger and added a green pepper, some seasonings, and a partial can of corn. My hubby and 2 year old loved it!

Calling BS! Rice was not cooked! Maybe with cooked rice this recipe would work, but not with uncooked. So, be for warned.

I'm sorry to hear that it didn't turn out for you. You did cook it covered, correct? No one else has reported that the rice didn't cook for them. Maybe your oven isn't heating properly?

Need a meal that is light on the wallet but heavy on the flavor? This is the recipe for you! Combine ground beef with dry onion soup mix-an instant flavor enhancer--and some creamy mushroom soup for an easy casserole. Rice is the perfect base for this dish, filling out the texture of the recipe while absorbing the flavors of the onion and ground beef for a juicy dinner!

Recipe says "uncooked rice" but doesn't say if you need to brown hamburger. That would be a helpful detail. I am making it for supper and trying it without browning hamburger, like meatloaf.

Made this when I was feeling extremely lazy but starving...used ground pork, no onion, added garlic powder and a can of mushrooms and it came out great, hit the spot, was very filling. I ate with a dollop of sour cream. Thanks for posting.

I also only used half a packet of onion soup mix to cut down on saltiness.

I sauteed the onion and rice in butter first then added to other ingredients. I used monterey jack cheese as it didn't specify what kind of cheese to use.

I brown the ground beef with the onion first and stir in some fresh sliced mushrooms. I use half a packet of onion soup mix to cut the saltiness down a bit.

I liked the recipe and the concept, and thought I would do a little combining of my style and some of the ones mentioned in the reviews. I added garlic powder, onion powder, and a little black pepper. I used a small box of rice aroni, it was only cooked for 15 minutes that way it would be really moist. I added 1/2 cup of cream, to the can of mushroom soup and I used turkey meat which I browned first, (2) lbs. with 2 pkgs. of the Lipton mix. So hopefully it will be turkeytastic!

Very good! I added a large can of mushrooms, substituted wild rice for white rice and added a little extra water.

This recipe was so easy and my whole family LOVED it! I wasn't sure about the ground beef, so I browned it before mixing it with the other ingredients. Also, I didn't have an onion, so just left that out. My husband and my kids loved this and are already telling me to make it again soon.
