This Sour Cream Beef and Rice Casserole has quickly become one of our favorites. I love all the flavors in this dish! I also love how easy it is to make. I usually have browned hamburger meat in my freezer, so this literally takes about 5 minutes to throw together. We serve this with some green beans and a crusty roll for a delicious weeknight meal!
- 1 1/2 cups instant white rice
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper

- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350.
Bring water to a boil in a medium sauce pan. Stir in instant white rice, cover and remove from heat. Let sit for 5 minutes, or until all water is absorbed.
Brown meat; drain off fat and return to skillet. Add pepper, garlic salt, tomato sauce and Worcestershire. Stir and simmer for 5 minutes.
