Rice is twice as nice in this recipe—it’s a side and main dish in one!

Ingredients

1
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1
small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1
cup uncooked Arborio or regular long-grain white rice
3 1/2
cups Progresso™ beef flavored broth (from 32-oz carton)
1/2
cup shredded carrot
1/2
cup shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
3
tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Steps

Expert Tips

If you use regular long-grain white rice instead of the Arborio rice, the finished dish will be less creamy with more separate, distinct rice grains. The reason: regular white rice doesn't contain as much starch as Arborio rice does.

Serve this meaty risotto with a Caesar salad and French bread for an easy weeknight meal.
