This recipe I learned from my dad. Before he became vegetarian, he used to make this cooking masterpiece of fast, healthy and filling, quite often :)
Me and my sister used to love it, and eat until the last rice was gone from the frying pan :) This is a bit “my version” of it, with the cayenne pepper, as I looove spicy food! Enjoy!
Boil rice in salted water. In the meantime:
Heat up olive oil on the frying pan add diced onion. When glazed put in smashed garlic and fry for a minute more. Be careful not to burn garlic or it will become bitter.
Increase the heat under the pan and add minced beef. Try to crush the bigger pieces with a wooden spoon. The smaller the better! Add a bit of salt and a pinch of nutmeg.
When the beef is properly fired add cherry tomatoes, drained red beans and rice drained out of water. Season with pepper, a bit more salt if needed, cayenne pepper and thyme (if you like it).
Tips and tricks:
Tastes great with grated cheese on top. Is very rich in good carbs and protein.
