"A good friend who's a missionary in the Phillippines gave me this casserole recipe," relates Deborah Schermerhorn of Colorado Springs, Colorado. "Chow mein noodles provide the nice crunch in this hearty dish."

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3 celery ribs, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1 jar (4-1/2 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 can (3 ounces) chow mein noodles

  2. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle with chow mein noodles. Bake, uncovered, 5-10 minutes longer or until the noodles are crisp.
