Spanish Rice, Recipe rewind, because some things are too good to miss!

This was originally posted 12.17.2009. You can also find it in the archives, but it is better here!

I had been wanting to play with the vinegars that I put together earlier this year. The onion and pepper vinegar is bookmarked for some heavy use. Tonight I made this Spanish Rice for dinner, it is delicious. Vinegar is such a flavor enhancer. Yes it can be sour, but if used correctly is is wonderful.

There are several recipes in the booklet that I plan on making. Tonight we started with the Spanish Rice.


Spanish Rice
adapted from:
Gourmet Vinegars, How to make and cook with them.
Marsha Peters Johnson

It is not real pretty, but it is soooo tasty!

1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion
1 green pepper roasted*, seeded and diced
1 red pepper roasted*, seeded and diced 
1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2  tsp garlic salt
3 T vinegar** - I used the peppers and onion style
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 c rice
1 c water

Brown the beef and onion in a dutch oven, drain excess fat. Stir in all remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, cover and simmer 20 minutes.

Serves 4 - 6
* roasting the peppers is essential to the flavor of this dish, worth the extra time.
** You could substitute red wine vinegar with good results.

As always thanks so much for stopping by.
I appreciate your time and your comments.

  1. I love me some Spanish rice! Or just about any kind of rice for that matter. My friend Kris just did a post about "Brown rice Pudding." You should check it out. http://cakesbykristin.blogspot.com/
    Have a splendid day, my friend.

  2. As soon as I saw this, I knew what I'm going to making for supper tonight. A departure from what I had in mind, but my husband will really love this. Thanks for the great idea.

  3. Great delicious recipes like this definitely deserved a rewind anytime! Sounds really good..
    The internet service has gone cuckoo yesterday as soon as I've commented on your post and just connected again half an hour ago! It's now past 12 midnight and am about to go to bed! Hopefully the internet connection would not do the disappearing act again tomorrow! Goodnight, Melynda, have a lovely weekend!

  4. I haven't made Spanish rice in so long. My recipe is very similar to yours except I don't add ground beef. I love the ground beef addition as the whole thing is a meal. Aren't recipe rewinds fun? :o)

  10. I did make it! It was delicious, much better than I thought it would be. And thanks for reading my mind and admonishing me to go ahead and roast those peppers. They really added so much to the flavor of the dish.

  11. I agree, I've been trying to use more flavor in things, like vinegar. I LOVE red wine vinegar. I haven't used any more exotic ones though. This looks great and I so want to try it! It looks very healthy and flavorful, thanks!

  12. I make something very similar but without the roasted peppers and without the vinegar. I bet that would be a good addition. I'll be trying it next time.
