  1. Crumble the ground beef into a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Drain off grease, and stir in the cream of mushroom soup, tomatoes, and uncooked rice. Cover, and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until rice is cooked, about 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven's broiler. When the rice is done cooking, transfer the contents of the skillet to a casserole dish. Cover with a layer of cheese.
  3. Broil until the cheese is melted and toasty. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy!

My family loved it. I modified it by adding onions, bell pepper and a couple dashes of worcestershire sauce as well as using minute rice. I also went the mega easy route and made it a one skillet meal by melting the cheese on top of the dish on the stove. I did not use the oven. Even better "left-over"!

I found it to be bland and boring. My rice took way longer to cook and I ended up with a gooey mess. I hate to rate a recipe this low because it takes talent beyond mine to create them. I just cannot honestly recommend this one. Thank you anyway though.

Great quick meal. My brother even likes this. Every now and again I will add a can of Rotel instead of plain diced tomatos. I also add one chopped onion. I don't put into the oven. I cook on top of the stove when it's done I put some cheddar cheese on top put the lid back on and let it melted.

we had this a few nights ago, and I loved it. My husband said it was basically like hamburger helper, and was a little too tomatoey. But, I like that it was home made and not from a box. I will definatly make again.

This recipe was really good, the only thing I had a problem with was the rice. It didn't cook in 15 minutes, or 30 either. Luckily I had some chicken broth to add so it wouldn't boil down. I've made it again since then, and made the rice separate. We love it.

I had to make dinner in a hurry and I found this recipe and even though I only browned ground meat with pepper and put in a can of celery soup and let it cook for ten minutes and poured it over rice, it was really tasty and only took about 20 minutes. I had cooked the rice in the rice cooker previously. I would never have thought to use a condensed cream soup with hamburger meat. I was really surprised how good it was and I skipped most of the ingredients and most of the steps. Hamburger jazz rocks! :) When I have more prep time, I will make it the correct way. Thanks, for sharing an easy and tasty recipe! ;)

This was very good. Had hamburger out and left over rice to use up. Used canned tomatoes with chipoltle and added minced onion, garlic powder and a can of diced green chilies. Used the whole bag of mozzarella cheese (2 c,), we love cheese ! Cooked it all in an electric skillet, as I dan't have a stove, Turned out great ! Thank-you for sharing !!!

I would give this a 5 star rating for taste. I used Rotel diced tomatoes with chilis to give it some kick. My husband liked it, but I have to say it was not appetizing looking. I turned off the lights and used candles. That was better. I think if I make it again I will drain the tomatoes, add an onion, and cook the rice separately. Would help the look.
