1 lb. Ground meat
5 Beef Bouillon Cubes
1 tbsp Brown Gravy Mix Tone`s
2 cups Minute Rice

In a medium frying pan brown ground meat.

Add 2-1/2 cups water and heat to boiling. Reduce to a medium low heat andadd bouillon cubes and brown gravy mix; stir until dissolved.

Add rice, remove from heat, cover pan let sit for 5 to 7 minutes or untilrice is done.

Stir in soy sauce and enjoy.
