How to make Texas Hash
Step 1: Heat the olive oil in a skillet with a tight-fitting cover over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the onion, peppers, garlic, ground beef, dry mustard, chili powder, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Saute until the ground beef has browned, breaking the meat into small pieces as it cooks.
Step 2: Then, add the rice and continue to cook for another 2 minutes to allow the rice to absorb the liquid. Next, add the tomato paste and cook for a minute more.
Step 3: To the pan, add the canned tomatoes with the juice along with the water and Worcestershire sauce. Stir well, put the lid on, and let everything simmer for about 20 minutes, covered.
Step 4: Take the lid off after 20 minutes, then fluff the mixture. Cook for a couple of minutes more (uncovered) if the mixture is still too wet.
Step 5: In the last few minutes of cooking, sprinkle the cheese (optional). Cover and continue to cook until done.
