Here’s an easy main course, for a bridal shower or for a family dinner.
1/3 cup chopped onions
1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon butter
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 to 2 cups instant rice
1/3 cup sour cream
Prepare soup according to package directions, omitting 1 cup water. While soup is simmering, sauté onions, mushrooms and ground beef in butter until onions are tender and beef is no longer pink. When soup is done simmering, add beef mixture, soy sauce and rice. Cover and simmer until rice is done; stir in sour cream. Pour mixture into greased casserole. Bake at 325 F for about 1 hour until casserole reaches desired consistency.
