Beef and Rice Burritos

Some years ago I blogged about these rice burritos I grew up eating. Well today I have remade them from scratch so they are gluten free and I can still enjoy them too.

Beef and Rice Burritos (gluten free)
Rice dinner mix adapted from Plain Chicken

1 pound ground beef
1 yellow onion, diced
2 Tbl chopped garlic
Salt and pepper to taste

2 Tbl butter
1 cup regular long grain rice
1/2 cup broken (gluten free) raw spaghetti pasta
14 oz can diced tomatoes (undrained)
3 Tbl diced canned carrots
2 1/2 cups (gf) beef broth
2 tsp beef better-than-bouillon paste
1 tsp onion powder
4 1/2 tsp (gf) Worcestershire
1 1/2 tsp (gf) soy sauce
1 Tbl chopped garlic
1/2 tsp black pepper

In a large skillet, brown ground beef with onion, garlic salt and pepper. Drain off fat. Set aside and keep warm. In the same skillet, melt 2 Tbsp butter. Add broken pasta and rice. Cook until lightly brown. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover. Cook 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until water is absorbed. Add cooked beef mixture and fill flour tortillas as desired.

  1. Sounds yummy, but if you put it in a flour tortilla, they are no longer gluten free. Try corn tortillas :)

  2. @Pam, I use gluten free tortillas for mine.
