Bacon Cheesburger Rice ala ~DKBB~

This is surprisingly yummy, and rather kid-friendly! And according to my husband, it goes great with smoked amber beer.

1 lb. ground beef
1¾ c. water
2/3 c. barbeque sauce
1 Tbsp. prepared mustard
2 tsp. dried minced onion
½ tsp. pepper
2 c. uncooked instant rice
1 c. (4 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
1 c. chopped dill pickles
1 medium onion, diced
4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.
  • Add water, barbeque sauce (I prefer Pine Ridge Jalapeno Barbeque sauce – http://www.herbadashery.com), mustard, dried minced onion, and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil, then stir in the rice; sprinkle with cheese, cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until liquid is all absorbed.
  • Sprinkle each serving with pickles, onion, and bacon.
