This easy mushroom rice recipe has rice mixed with ground meat and fried mushrooms.   For this recipe, you can use any kind of ground meat – I have made this mushroom rice with ground beef and ground turkey and they were both really tasty.  You can also make this rice recipe with ground chicken or pork, I’m sure it will be just as good!
