This is something that I came up with a while ago that my roommate could make easily (he's not exactly culinary school material). It's ridiculous easy. Very tasty. VERY flexible (swap out proteins, seasonings, add veggies, you can do whatever you want to it). Should work in a crock pot if needed, definitely works in one of these combo rice cooker/slow cooker things.
3 cups of rice
Water for 3 cups of rice
1 can of diced tomatoes (don't drain)
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 teaspoons crystallized garlic
1 lb ground beef uncooked
2 tablespoons fajita or taco seasoning
2 teaspoons jalapeno salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon of crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 tablespoon chicken broth concentrate (or 1 big bullion cube (4 normal sized))
1 tablespoon beef broth concentrate (or 1 big bullion cube (4 normal sized))
about 1 lb of chicken (either a breast or thigh works) (thawed) cut up into 1 inch pieces
No butter or oil, the fat in the beef will be our fat
Mix all of this in rice cooker (break up the beef as much as possible), and push the rice button.
Things I do stovetop:
Steak (with a cast iron)
I would really suggest getting a combo rice cooker/slow cooker like this one. I would imagine you can find something like this in Japan but there's always the internet. Slow cooker meals are great for one pot stuff. Really low effort cooking and provides a huge array of options. Really all you have to do is chop up your ingredients, throw them together and leave it for a while.
Get a rice cooker. You can use them for so much more than just rice!

If you're on a budget I've been using this one for a while now. Kind of small compared to some of the other one's I've seen but the versatility is great. Does a good job at making rice and the programmable features make it super convenient. One of the major downfalls I've noticed, though, is that there is no high/low setting, it just "slow cook"s.
That is wierd.. when I click on it.. it goes to the rice cooker on the wishlist
Here is the one I was looking at.. if you still are willing PM me and ill work out the shipping address.
(I actually recommend you don't get the cooker pictured in that article. He says to get the simplest rice cooker, but you'll really be better off getting one of these, which actually ends up being cheaper, even though it's a higher quality product and prettier.)
I bought this and it's great
Cheap, doubles as a vegetable steamer and crock pot. Totally worth the money for me.
Aroma rice cooker like this one. You fill it with the appropriate amount of rice and water, and it cooks it automatically. You can leave it in there for hours if you forget about it. Get an air fryer, and you can cook your chicken and broccoli in it by the time the rice is finished.
We've had this model for about 4 years now and it's been really terrific.
The liner is metal instead of ceramic but it seems to do just as good of a job at slow cooking our food. It cleans up really easily and cooks both brown and white rice.
