Now this sounds like a good recipe, I made some the other day and cooked the meat and rice first, but didn’t have good results, this is the first time I ever cooked it first. I prefer it this way. I’m going to try your recipe it is similar to my old one. I will let you know how they turn out. Thanks for sharing.
