Easy Beef Jambalaya is a great dinner that you can prepare in less than 30 minutes! This is a shortcut method. Meaning it can be prepared with a box mix that you elevate with a few ingredients.
All you need is a box of Zatarain’s Jambalaya Rice Mix and a pound of cooked ground beef. Mix ingredients together and let it simmer for 25 minutes. It is really a simple dish to make, but is also full of flavor!
This recipe is also gluten free! It states it right on the front of the package. Even better this dish can be made in one pot so it makes cleaning up a lot easier.
I hope you enjoy this Easy Beef Jambalaya. It can be made with other protein (like sausage, chicken or shrimp). We like to serve it with a side of beans and a salad. I hope you enjoy this quick and easy dinner idea.
