Sharon's Country Casserole is an easy to make comfort casserole that my mom used to make when I was a kid. Nothing fancy or gourmet about this casserole, just a simple fill your belly kind of casserole that everyone will love.
What I like about this casserole is you can easily omit or change some of the vegetables to your liking. Don’t like Green Bell Peppers? Replace them with something else or leave them out completely! The real trick here is getting the rice just perfect. Practice makes perfect!
I love making casseroles. They are pretty easy to make and usually take no more than 1 hour to eat. By far the most popular casserole I've posted on this blog is my Sloppy Joe Casserole. It's been shared over 20k times on Pinterest and Facebook.
🐄 How to Handle Raw Beef
Thaw raw ground beef on a plate on the lowest shelf of the refrigerator, to avoid dripping onto other foods.
Keep raw and ready-to-eat meats separate.
Wash hands thoroughly before and after handling raw ground beef. Wash cutting boards, bowls, and utensils used to prepare raw ground beef with hot soapy water and rinse well.
Use separate plates to carry raw ground beef patties to the cooking area and cooked patties to the serving area.
Use a Thermometer to ensure Ground Beef Reaches the Safely Cooked Internal Temperature of 160°F.
