In your largest stove-top pan, over medium heat, fry hamburger and onions together until hamburger is crumbly and onions are translucent. Drain off the fat. Add butter, stir til it melts. Chop the "leftover" meat into bite-sized pieces, add. Then add the shrimp, honey and soy sauce. Simmer 10 minutes to marry the flavors. This should be on the wet side, if it's not, add more soy sauce or your favorite flavoured vinegar. Season with garlic powder, seasoning salt and ground pepper, and hot sauce, if desired. Steam, boil, or microwave the frozen veggies, drain and add them with the mushrooms. Add the cooked rice. If there's not enough room in the pan, combine the meat mixture with the rice in a large roasting pan you've sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Mix it well. If you're not ready to serve it yet, you can keep it warm in a 350 degree F. oven for up to an hour and a half.
