Random Recipe Monday – Uncle Russell’s Spanish Rice March 10, 2008

Filed under: Cooking,Vintage Recipes — LotusMama @ 10:02 pm

Today’s recipe comes from my Scandinavian great uncle, Russell. I’m not quite sure how a Norwegian fellow came to make Spanish rice as his signature dish, but perhaps in Minnesota this reminds folks of Madrid. Anywho, here is the recipe for those looking for an easy casserole.

Uncle Russell’s Spanish Rice

6 slices bacon, chopped

1 onion chopped

1 ½ lbs ground beef

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup uncooked rice

3 cups tomato juice heated (approximately)

1 teaspoon paprika

Sauté bacon slowly and pour off part of fat. Brown chopped onion and beef in hot fat. Add salt.

Add the rice, the tomato juice and paprika to meat.

Pour into greased casserole and bake at 350 degrees F until rice is tender, approximately 40 minutes.
