Rice Burgler (an un-recipe)

Rice burgler was a staple meal in my childhood home.  It's an easy, filling, and inexpensive mixture of cooked brown rice, browned ground beef, and vegetables.  This dish is so easy, in fact, you don't really need a recipe.  However, rice burgler shows up in my menu plans often enough that I felt like I should share it.  Feel free to substitute other meats or vegetables, based on what you have on hand, and according to your tastes.
