Homemade Beef Rice-A-Roni

Homemade Beef Rice-A-Roni – never use the boxed stuff again! This looked and tasted just like the real thing! I had to tell my husband that I made the rice from scratch – not a box. Rice, pasta, beef broth, beef bouillon, onion powder, Worcestershire, soy sauce, garlic powder, pepper and chopped carrots. Seriously delicious – tons of great beefy flavor! We make this all the time – SO much better than the box.

One of our all-time favorite side dishes is Beef Rice-A-Roni. We’ve been eating it forever! It is so easy to make, and we just love it with steaks! I have a great recipe for Homemade Chicken Rice-A-Roni, and I decided that I needed to make a Homemade Beef Rice-A-Roni recipe.

This looked and tasted just like the real thing! I had to tell Chicken Legs that I made the rice from scratch – not a box. He was impressed!

I like to keep ziplock baggies of the rice and broken spaghetti mixture in the pantry. It makes this homemade version so easy for a weeknight side dish. I used some chopped canned carrots in the rice because the boxed version has little carrots in the rice. I only used about 3 tablespoons of the carrots. Use the remaining carrots as a side dish later or chop them up and freeze them to use in the rice later.

  1. I made this last week and we LOVED it! It was even tastier for leftovers the next afternoon! I have a question for you…do you think this would freeze well? Thanks!

  2. Hi! I hope you can help me! I chose to try a new recipe this week – it’s your recipe with ground beef, Rice a Roni, cheese, French’s fried onions, and cream of chicken soup. Well the grocery store is hit or miss with groceries at the moment, and didn’t have the rice a roni. Can I make this first, then substitute it into the recipe? Also, the only spaghetti I have is the fideo – precut noodles. Thank you! I love so many of your recipes!

  3. I only had instant rice. I was worried the noodles would not cook.I uesed 1 cup of rice to one cup of liquid. Then added extra beef broth as it cooked to make let it boil a little longer to cook the noodles. Turned out awesome!

  4. My son and I love your chicken rice-a-roni recipe – we haven't bought a boxed mix since finding your recipe. I'll definitely be trying this beef recipe very soon. Thank you!
