Easy Mushroom Beef and Rice Recipe

No matter how many times she makes mushroom beef and rice for dinner, her kids devour it like it’s no body’s business. She said although everyone loves it so much she feels guilty because it’s so easy to make. It doesn’t feel like she’s even cooking. We want to make it fresh without using canned cream of mushroom soup. But you can certainly use it if you want to make prep quick and easier! There’s so much flavor from the earthy mushrooms and ground beef, it’s hard to pass up a second bowl. And it’s all cooked in a creamy sauce so it’s like a mushroom and beef gravy!

Tips for How to Make Mushroom Beef and Rice

  • We used heavy whipping cream but you can use a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup to replace the heavy whipping cream. But you’ll have to add some water or milk to water down the condensed soup. Add as much liquid as you want to make the dish to your desired consistency.
  • Make sure to use enough seasonings/salt to bring out the flavors. This dish can easily be too bland if you don’t add enough salt.
  • Serve the mixture over pasta if you want. It’s great on pasta too!
  • Quinoa and couscous are other great grain options to serve with this dish.

    What do you mean by “herbs”??? What do you use?

    • Best Recipe Box Reply

      Hi Cinny, we like to use dried herbs. You can use any combination of dried oregano, basil or thyme.

    I love this recipe I make this once a week at the very least. So much flavor with very little prep. I add a splash of wine and tablespoon of butter to the mushrooms to add some depth.

    • Diane Reply

      Thanks Chelsea! So glad you enjoy the recipe and love the splash of wine and addition of butter. YUM!

    I’m wondering if you could double the liquid for a little more sauce?? Do you think that would work?

    • Diane Reply

      Hi Susan! Doubling the liquid might be too much. We suggest adding about and extra 1/4 cup of milk. If you need more, then add additional 1/4 cups. Also, as you add more liquid, remember to add more salt or seasoning so it doesn’t taste bland.
