Beef and Rice "Olives"

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Rice

 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Lean ground beef
  • 2 c Cooked converted rice
  • 1 ts Oregano
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Pepper
  • 1 Egg; beaten



This dish comes from a cookbook that is about 200 years old. I cannot
quite figure out the background of the name but we have seen the dish many
times since those early days. It is obviously a way of stretching meat
using rice. I have added some seasoning and the dish is baked, so it is
easy to prepare.

Mix all together and form into 1-inch balls. Place on a baking sheet and
bake for about 20 minutes at 375ø, or until they are done to your taste.

If you make these small enough, they are terrific as party snacks. Larger
sizes fit the dinner table well, along with a green salad, rolls, and
perhaps some Cabbage and Salt Pork (see recipe).
