Pour in the rice, stir to combine the meat with the rice, add the 1 ¾ cups water and bring to boil over high heat with the cooking pot uncovered.
Once the water level has reduced, reduce the heat then cover with aluminium foil and cook for a further 2-3 mins or until water has dried up.
Turn of your heat, fluff the rice and set aside for about 5 mins.
