This was a quick, favorite meal when my children were growing up. I've entered my recipes in several contests and have won first—and second-place prizes.—Helen Phillips, Greensburg, Indiana


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (16 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, optional


  1. In a skillet, cook ground beef and onion until the beef is browned and the onion is tender; drain. Stir in rice, tomato sauce, sauerkraut, caraway seeds, water, pepper, and salt if desired. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 25 minutes or until the rice is tender.
