Turkish Spinach

I haven't posted a recipe in awhile so here goes. This original Turkish dish was given to me by my mother in law Edith


Yield: 1 casserole
1 1/4 lb Ground beef
2/3 Stick butter
1 c Diced onions
4 10 oz. boxes of frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 cn 28 oz. Progresso Crushed Tomatoes with added puree'
1 ts (rounded) salt
1/2 c Water
1/2 c Rice IN_
1/4 c Water

Start by putting the 1/2 cup of rice in the 1/4 cup of water. In a one cup measure, this should bring it up to the 3/4 cup mark. In a large spaghetti pot, brown the meat in its own fat. Remove the meat and pour off the fat. In that same pot, melt the butter and lightly brown the onions. When done, add the cooked meat. Add the spinach. Add the tomato sauce, salt, water, and the water and rice that has been soaking. Mix thoroughly, and then cover and let simmer on a low flame for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. If needed, keep juicy by adding a little water or tomato juice. Serve with yogurt or sour cream and some French bread. As with other casseroles, it tastes better on the second day.
