1.5 pounds ground beef
2 large onion, diced (about 2 cups)
1.75 cups Swanson® Beef Broth

0.5 cup raisins
0.5 cup toasted silvered almonds
2 cups long grain white rice, cooked according to package directions (about 6 cups)


Cook the beef and onions in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.
