Ground Beef Fried Rice

Ground Beef Fried Rice_

I recently bought 50 pounds of rice. Yes, I said 50 pounds of rice. I think we might be eating lots of rice in the near future.

I know some of you may be thinking you bought 50 pounds of rice?!

But buying rice in bulk is my favorite way to buy it. We eat a lot of rice and since we don’t live close to any stores, I like to stock up.ย It is usually cheaper and rice lasts a long time. It is also easy to store, so I really don’t mind buying it in bulk.

And since I now I have good supply of rice, I thought I would share a rice recipe with you today.

We love fried rice. It is one of those meals that you can really change up by using different meats or vegetables in it. This recipe is a little different because it uses ground beef, which is not usually in fried rice, but it works well.

This is a good way to serve rice because it is an easy and inexpensive meal. My family loves it and the leftovers are great for lunch the next day.

  1. I’ve done that, too. Not with rice but I have bought huge quantities thinking it was a great idea only to wonder what was going through my head at the store.

    Thanks for sharing this at Slightly Indulgent Mondays!

  2. This sounds yummy! I cook up rice and we use it throughout the week in wraps for lunch!

    I love the new look I your blog!

  3. This looks yummy! Looks somewhat like a dish I’ve had at an Indian restaurant called queema biryani. I will probably have a better chance of getting my kids to eat your version than the biryani one, though! Looking forward to trying it out.

  4. fix the image in the upper left i can see a mistake from the eraser tool. good rice by the way im eating it now.

  5. I love rice, but boy-howdy that’s a lot! LOL You could always add some in some in soup while it cooks, make rice pudding, rice pilaf (one of my fav’s and very simple), stuffed cabbage, list is endless. Ooo rice for breakfast is good too, little bit of milk, butter and sugar. I luv’d that as a kid. My grandmother use to make some type of rice dish that was put in a mold. Good luck and I look forward to your rice recipes ๐Ÿ™‚

    • The good thing about rice is that it does not really go bad as long as you store it well. ๐Ÿ™‚ My husband used to eat rice with milk and a little sugar in it all the time. It is a nice easy, frugal, breakfast.

  6. WOW!! Never thought to try it with ground beef!! Fried rice is awesome because you can throw in whatever you have on hand!! Thanks for the great idea!

  7. It’s great my daughter love it

  8. How do you store 50 pounds of rice? I store brown rice (4lbs at a time) in the freezer because I stored it in an air tight container on the counter one time and it went bad. Had a smell that wasn’t right.

    • Mark Diehl says

      You can store 50 lbs of rice in two five gallon plastic buckets with sealable lids. You can get from your hardware store. It will last nearly forever.

    I would like to make the Ground Beef Fried Rice for dinner very soon. The problem is that I don’t have any mushrooms but do have some chopped up carrots in the freezer. Looks like I’ll have to improvise. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Ground Beef Fried Rice is the FIRST recipe that I made from your blog, and honestly, it’s delicious. I screwed up the recipe by adding four eggs instead of two, I didn’t grate the carrots but used the rest from the freezer from a different recipe and used three cups of cooked rice. I have plenty of left overs that will last for a few days. Thank you so much for sharing this phenomenal recipe, Lynn!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
