Spicy Beefy Rice Bowls

Description

I always, always, always hesitate to put the word “spicy” in a recipe title because I know it probably turns a lot of people off…BUT…spicy is my jam and I am guess it’s for a few of you out there too.  This recipe doesn’t have to be spicy.  Omit the sauce at the end and you won’t have any heat, just loads of flavor.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 pounds of ground beef
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup soy sauce (we use g-free)
  • ½ cup beef stock
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • a mix of fresh veggies (I buy them pre-packaged at Trader Joe’s!) but one that has shredded carrots, maybe mushrooms, some red bell peppers and onions…whatever you can find that’s already prepped and chopped for you
  • prepared white rice (try Trader Joe’s Jasmine Rice!) for 4 to 6 people
  • about 6 green onions, chopped
  • a fresh chili garlic sauce (on the Asian foods aisle) to garnish (it’s spicy!)

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown up your beef in a drizzle of EVOO.  Once browned and crumbly, stir in a pinch of both salt and pepper.
  2. Next, stir in both your soy sauce and beef stock and bring up to a simmer.  Once this is simmering, stir in your chopped garlic and simmer another minute or so before adding in all of your veggies.  Simmer just about 3 or 4 minutes (so they don’t get too mushy) and then remove from heat.
  3. Add your prepared rice to a bowl and top with your beef mixture.  Add chopped green onions and chili sauce to the top.
  4. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

We use gluten-free soy sauce.
