Brown Rice Goulash

This is another recipe from Miserly Moms .

Simple Goulash
1 pound ground meat ($1.59)
4 cups cooked rice (approx. 2 cups uncooked) (approx. .25 if bought in bulk)
1 can tomato soup (.50 for store brand)
1 can cream of mushroom soup (.50-.75 for store brand)
4 slices of American cheese (.25)

In large skillet brown ground meat with salt and pepper to taste. Drain fat. Turn heat to med./low. Add cooked rice and both soups. Mix well and then smooth out in skillet. Top with slices of cheese and heat until cheese starts to slightly bubble.

 Ground beef is one of the most frugal and versatile meal starters that I know.On a tight budget, 1 $10 package of ground beef could make supper for about a week!

*Served here with a simple slaw and green peas. Total meal cost approx. $5.50 to feed 8 with leftovers!
