  • Combine rice with 2 cups of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then cover with a tight-fitting lid, reduce heat to lowest setting, and cook for 15 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit, covered, an additional 5 minutes.
    Alternatively, cook rice in a rice cooker.
  • While rice is cooking, saute beef in a medium skillet until browned. Pour off some fat if desired, but leave at least a bit in the skillet.
  • Add butter to cooked rice and gently mix, then add desired amount of rice to the skillet with the beef. I usually use half the total cooked rice, saving the rest for another use, but you can use as much or as little as you like.
  • Season with soy sauce if using. Otherwise salt and pepper to taste, or follow my grandma's lead and add a splash of Worcestershire.
