Put all ingredients, except meat into greased 9x13" pan. Lay meat on top of rice. Season meat as desired. Cover with foil. Bake at 350 for 1 1/2-2 hours. I like to take the foil off when it gets near the end, to brown the meat a little.
I make my own cream of mushroom soup because of food allergies, but also because it tastes much better!
If you are using jasmine rice, increase broth by 1/2 cup per cup of rice, so use 2 cups for the smaller batch or 3 cups for the larger batch.
Preheat oven to 400. Line baking sheet with heavy duty foil, then parchment paper. (The foil makes it so you don't have to wash the pan and the parchment paper prevents the meatballs from sticking to the foil.)
Combine all ingredients for meatballs. Using a small cookie scoop, form meatballs and bake on baking sheet for 15 minutes.
While that is baking, put oil in skillet and dice onion. Begin cooking the onions while you slice the mushrooms. Add to onions.
When onions and mushrooms are nearly done, add beef base, black pepper and garlic powder. Add 2 cup of water to the pan. Bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch with remaining 1/2 cup of water. Gradually add cornstarch mix to pan and stir as you are pouring. Cook, stirring often, until thoroughly mixed.
Add cooked meatballs to mushroom sauce, cover with lid and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 30 minutes.
Note that the meatballs will grow when cooking because of the raw rice in them.

I had never heard of this before we went to a hayride a few years ago and someone brought some stuffed pepper soup for the potluck. I loved it! She didn’t have a recipe, so I had to come up with one for it. I like this even better than Stuffed Peppers, and it is super easy and fast!
In a Dutch oven, brown beef with onion and peppers. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Cook until rice is fully cooked.
This can also be made in a crock pot. Cook beef, onion, and peppers in a skillet first, then transfer to crock pot with all other ingredients. Cook about 4 hours on high, or until rice is cooked through.
