Instructions

Instant Pot Directions:

Add ground beef to the Instant Pot along with 1/4 cup of water. Set to Saute, High and as the ground beef begins to cook, break up with a potato masher into largish chunks. As soon as the ground beef begins to form a bit of a crust, add in the onions. Continue to cook, breaking beef down into roughly half-inch chunks, till the beef is no longer pink. Drain excess fat if desired. (Water should be evaporated.)

Add in the oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper, the spice mix, red pepper flakes, and brown sugar. Stir for a minute until fragrant. Immediately add the broth, scraping up the bottom of the pot well to remove any fond on the bottom. Sprinkle the diced peppers over the top, then add the rice in an even layer, the tomato with their juice, then the tomato sauce, trying not to disturb the layers. Do not stir.

Place the lid on the Instant Pot, seal, press cancel and set to High Pressure, 9 minutes. When time is up, if time allows, use a 10-minute natural release and then release any remaining pressure. A quick release may be done, but the rice fares better with a natural one. Stir, add a little hot sauce and serve.

Stovetop Directions:

Add ground beef and onions to a large pot or Dutch oven. Cook ground beef, breaking into 1/2 inch chunks until browned and no longer pink. Drain excess fat if desired.

Add in the oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper, the spice mix, red pepper flakes, and brown sugar. Stir for a minute until fragrant. Immediately add the broth, scraping up the bottom of the pot well to remove any fond on the bottom. Sprinkle the diced peppers over the top, then add the rice the tomato with their juice and the tomato sauce. Stir.

Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cook, stirring very gently now and then if needed, until rice is tender, about 15 minutes longer. The soup benefits from about a 10-minute rest before serving. Stir, add a little hot sauce and serve.
