Annas Italian Rice Bake

September 25, 2022

Anna’s original recipe on her website for Beef and Rice bake is one of her most popular ones. The stats on it are AMAZING! (yes I made her site, so I am privilege to see things like that)

This recipe is taken from Anna Van Dyken’s Book #2 – How I’ve Kept The Weight Off – Page 138.  Fantastic Book with amazing recipes

Oh, If you looking for the full recipe – you’ll have to buy the book 🙂

Any recipe that Anna has created is amazing to me and this Italian Rice Bake is no different.

Once again – my Thermomix had to come into it and this is super super easy this way.

Below is Annas recipe for her Beef & Rice Bake.
