Brown 1 lb. ground beef in a deep skillet.
Add to this one medium yellow onion (diced), 2 cloves garlic (minced), 3 carrots (diced), and one large potato (diced):
Add 6 cups water, 1 tablespoon soy sauce (can add more or less to taste), 3/4 cup rice, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. (Spices can be adjusted to taste).
Bring to a boil and then once it starts to boil, cover and simmer for about 45 minutes.
Be sure to stir every so often. Cook until rice and vegetables are tender. Consistency should be like a think stew, not runny. You can either remove the lid and cook or add water as necessary to get the correct consistency.
Serve up in bowl and enjoy! Delicious!
