Spanish Rice with Beef
Serves 4 | Phase 1 | Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 1 hour
1 pound lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
3 cups chopped bell peppers
2 cups beef broth
1 14-ounce can diced tomatoes with juice
1 cup (8-ounce can) tomato sauce
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/4 cup uncooked brown rice

In a large skillet or wide pot (use one that has a tight-fitting lid), cook and stir the beef, onion, and peppers over medium heat until the beef is browned.
Stir in the broth, tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili powder, garlic powder and sea salt. Bring to a boil. Stir in the rice, reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer 1 hour, or until the rice is tender. Sprinkle generously with chopped fresh cilantro or parsley just before serving.
