Ground Beef And Brown Gravy Over Rice Recipe

Have an ideal savory meal with this ensemble of ground beef, brown gravy, and rice! This simple yet very appetizing dish is very quick and easy to make. You can also try replacing white rice with cauliflower rice for a healthier meal. Read on and discover how to make the classic ground beef and gravy over rice plus a couple of tips to give it extra bombs of flavors.

Tips for Making Ground Beef and Brown Gravy Over Rice

The combination of ground beef and brown gravy is just exquisite, and serving it over rice is just one of the yummiest ways to enjoy this hearty dish. Here are some tips to further elevate your dish.

  • Use a non-stick pan for cooking your ground beef. Beef tends to stick on regular pans, and those leftover bits will eventually burn if not removed.
  • Brown your ground beef. Take your time in cooking the beef for it to gain the desired crispiness. Stirring it f for around 6 to 10 minutes should suffice.
  • Add beef broth to your brown gravy mix, infusing it with extra beefy flavors. Using some of the excess beef juices from browning your meat works the same way. Combine it with your gravy to add a kick of flavor.
  • You can add extra bites by tossing in vegetables like shiitake mushrooms, roasted cauliflowers, or chives. Their flavors sure blend well with the beef gravy.
  • Try making beef patties out of ground beef. Go all out and make some homemade beef burger patties and pour your brown gravy all over it. It only requires a few more steps to enjoy chunky bites of meat!
  • Make your gravy creamier by using ½ cup of milk and ½ cup of water to dissolve your gravy mix instead of just using water.
Tip: Adding a side of mashed potatoes will give your beef gravy an extra role and will make this meal more filling!

Commonly Asked Questions

How to make brown gravy from scratch?

Typically, beef broth, flour, and butter are key ingredients. But if you don’t have beef broth, you can still easily make a homemade brown gravy out of the ingredients you might already have at home. You will need Worcestershire sauce, instant beef bouillon granules, cornstarch, gravy browner, and water. Combine Worcestershire sauce, granules, and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Stir it continuously until it boils. Then, stir in the gravy browner. Enjoy your brown gravy!

How do I store and reheat ground beef with gravy after cooking?

Let your meat with gravy cool at room temperature. Put it in a freezer bag and you can store it for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to consume, thaw it in the fridge overnight. Then, cook it in a pan with butter or a little oil. Heat your beef and gravy under low heat to avoid getting overcooked. You can also heat it in the microwave by putting it in a microwave-safe container with a loose cover for 3 minutes.
