  • 1 - 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 lb ground sausage
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 14.5 oz can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 14.5 oz can condensed cream of celery soup
  • 1 quart chicken broth
  • 2 cups long grain white rice recommend either basmati or jasmine


  • Add the meats, celery, and onion to a large skillet set over medium high heat. Cook them, crumbling the meat as you do, until the meat's cooked & browned through out- about 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove the skillet from heat, and strain off any excess grease.
  • Add the cream of soups to the skillet, and stir until evenly combined. Pour in the broth, again stirring until evenly combined. Stir in the rice.
  • Lightly spray a 9x13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Transfer the rice mixture to the prepared casserole dish, and spread it out evenly.
  • Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil, and bake at 350° for an hour and 15 minutes.
  • Remove the dish from the oven, and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Use a sturdy spoon to stir things around to gently 'fluff' the rice. Then scoop onto plates or into bowls and serve.
