  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove , minced
  • 1/2 yellow onion , chopped
  • 2 Roma tomatoes or 1 large tomato , chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1 can whole kernel corn
  • 1/2 lb beef , thin cut (or thin sliced chuck steak)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 Tablespoon lime or lemon juice
  • 1 pkg Knorr Rice Sides (I used Spanish Rice)

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine beef with salt, pepper, cumin and lemon juice. Toss to coat. Cover and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. (See note)
  2. In a large skillet, heat up the olive oil.
  3. Add beef to the skillet. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the beef browns nicely.
  4. Add garlic, onion, pepper and tomatoes. Cook until veggies are tender, about 5 minutes.
  5. Ad the rice mix, water and corn to the saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring often.
  6. Lower the heat to low setting, cover the pot and let simmer until the rice is cooked, about 7 minutes.
  7. Let stand in room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
