Argentine Beef Stroganoff Alfredo Risotto

Just something I whipped up as I went along. Ended up being quite tasty.

Argentine Beef Stroganoff Alfredo Risotto
1/2 cup butter
2 raw argentine hamburger patties
130g fire roasted capsicum strips
1 1/2 cup aborio rice
1 pkt Xtra Full Beef Stroganoff Cup-a-soup
1 pkt Alfredo pasta and sauce
1 carrot, diced
1 cup frozen corn kernels
as much boiling water as needed, one kettleful will do

Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Put the patties in the pan, over high heat, breaking up with a wooden spoon while browning. Add the capsicum, and the rice. Fry until the rice is toasty and golden. Throw in the soup mix, the carrot, and the contents of the pasta packet. Pour in boiling water, enough to cover everything in the pot, and cook on a low simmer until absorbed. Keep adding, and cooking off, water until the rice is tender. Throw in the corn and cook for a minute or two more, just to defrost the corn.

Serve with a sprinkle of grated cheese, and a grind of freshly cracked pepper.

It got the blurry stamp of approval!
