Damn 5"8" 226 lbs 7% bf thats JACKED, thanks for the recipe!Guys I was spending sooooo much money on food it wasn’t funny to keep up and gain the weight I have been, so I started digging deep in my half Arab culture and dishes, and found something that literally can feed an army for a few buck, while being lean and packed with good carbs ( if using insulin ) and large amounts of protein.
Once per week, I do this
6lbs Ground Beef
2 large Cans Tomato Sauce
8 Cups Basmati Rice
And whatever else you like to season your food with
First pour all 8 cups of rice in a large pot, with half a cup of olive oil, Sauté for around for 5 minutes constantly stirring, so you don’t burn the rice. Add in chopped onions fresh garlic, or even the powdered version and cook. 5-6 minutes of stirring. Turn off Heat, and add 9-10 Cups water just enough to over the rice about a half inch above the rice level.
Stir and bring water to a boil, Once boiling place foil on top of the pot then place lid to seal in all the vapors, and lower heat to low for a simmer. Let that cook for 17 minutes. AND DO NOT open to look inside the lid.
After the 17 min have passed, remove pot from heat and let sit 18-20 minutes still covered and again do not look at it!!
While your rice is simmering and sitting sauté, the 6lbs of ground beef, fully cook it, and drain the oil, season while cooking with your choice of flavors, I use onion powder, garlic powder and some Arabic spices. Drain oil and add 2 the 2 16 ounce cans of tomato sauce, alongside 1.5 cans full water, season some more, and place lid on and let simmer for 20 minutes..
Once done the rice should be ready to unveil. Fluff using a spoon on the side and you will have perfect rice, dump the meat and sauce into the rice pot, and stir stir stir!! And wala. Protein packed, packed with good carbs, and you can cook it in bulk stick it in the fridge and eat it for days, I love it!! Some days I steam some veggies; sometimes I eat it with bread, other times just solo. But get this 1 ounce of 80/20 ground beef has 24 grams protein, there are 96 ounces in 6lb ground beef, now that’s a lot of fucking protein!!
Filling, and gets the Job done for under 20 bucks.
This is how I bulk, I am 5’8 at 226 7% and still gaining thanks to this cheap dish, aas, and training, Now I do eat other meals, and take in shakes, but this is one of my favorite meals that won’t break the wallet and gets the job done, and I can’t seem to get tired of it.
Just some friendly advice try some make a smaller portion and see for your self.
Every Monday I make this huge pot and throw it in the fridge to eat for tues – Friday sometimes lasts longer
