Creativity and a rice cooker

l

Backstory, I have a rice cooker, a mircrowave and two burners. Along side that, I have about 1 square foot of kitchen space. My cutting board hangs over the sink, sometimes falls and usually makes a huge mess. It's not conducive to fun cooking. :(

I want to make new things with the ricecooker, but it seems that most recipes are just variations on rice. Jambalaya, rice with ______, etc...

I eat way too much rice as it is here.

I was thinking of browning some beef or pork with carmelized onions, cooling them down and adding them to the rice cooker along wit potatoes and carrots and maybe black pumpkin (texture of pumpkin but taste of zucchini!).

For the liquid, maybe some chicken stock and beer? Red wine?

Spices will probably be cayenne or equivalent heat for the meat. Butter, salt & pepper for onions.

Paprika?

HELP ME!
