Recipe Tips

  • I add the rice at the start of cooking to help thicken the liquid. However, if you prefer your soup to be more liquid and less grainy, you can add the rice fifteen minutes before serving.
  • Ground beef is also known as beef mince or hamburger in some countries.
  • You may need to season the soup generously but be careful not to go overboard with the salt and pepper. I recommend tasting it as you season so you can get it to the perfect taste.
  • Other types of ground meat will work in this recipe. For example, ground pork, chicken, or even lamb will work nicely with the other flavors in this recipe.
  • I recommend using cooked rice, as uncooked rice may turn the soup too thick. Ensure the cooked rice is fresh or has been stored correctly in the refrigerator before use.
