Beef with Rice and Spinach

Prep time: 5 min.
Cook time: 40 min.

- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 4 cups canned crushed tomatoes
- 10 ounces spinach, thawed
- 3/4 cup white rice
- 1 tsp. dill weed
- 1/4 tsp. pepper

In a large skillet, saute beef, onion and garlic over medium high heat about 5 minutes, stirring frequently until beef is browned and crumbly. Drain off excess fat and stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 30 to 35 minutes or until rice is tender.

NOTE: the beef will appear pink after simmering even though you have cooked it thoroughly. It is just a weird thing that happens. Don't worry. :)
