The first step is just getting everything ready. Chop up the bell pepper and onion. If you are worried that you don't have enough the bell pepper should fill a half cup and the onion should be a rounded cup.

Next dissolve the beef bouillon cube in 1 1/2 cups warm water. (don't boil the water just zap it in the microwave.)


Now in the sauce pan:

Heat  1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil

Continually stir this until the rice begins to slightly turn tan. Then immediately move on to the second step.
