  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 yellow onions (small)
  • 2 carrots
  • 10 ounces ground beef
  • 1 tomato (medium)
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1 cup green peas
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 and 1/4 cup rice (medium to long grain round white rice)
  • 1.5 cups beef broth
  • 23 tablespoons parsley


  1. Place a wok on stove on lowest setting and add butter and oil. When they’re hot, add diced onion and diced carrots. Simmer for a few minutes. Add ground beef and mix well.
  2. Skin a soft tomato and dice into the wok. Continue by adding corn, peas, and the seasonings. Mix well and simmer together for 20 minutes.
  3. Add rice and parsley to the wok together with beef broth and two cups of water. Simmer another 20 minutes. Turn the stove off, cover the wok, and leave for a few minutes so the rice soaks up the moisture.
