I’m thinking I should do a 101 ways to prepare ground beef as I have an outrageously inexpensive source of very lean, grass fed, organic meat and I have a ton of it in my freezer. I virtually never ate any beef before I got this source.
I was once again inspired by Wandering Coyote, though I have to say my dish is a very toned down and simpler version.
I got to cooking and didn’t have most of the ingredients I would have liked to have. This is the recipe WC recommended.
In any case, I certainly cannot call this Mongolian Beef, which is what WC made. But it was tasty even if extremely simplified from it’s inspiration.
This was the dumbed down version–which was completely acceptable in the end:
3 cloves garlic
1 small purple cabbage (grated in food processor–it should have been sliced though, that’s why you can’t really see it)
1 bunch green onions
2 large carrots (grated in food processor)
1 lb ground beef
4 tbls tamari (tamari is essentially soy sauce, I’m allergic to wheat and tamari has no wheat in it as soy sauce does)
1 tsp red chili pepper flakes
1 tbls dried ginger (I was dismayed to find we were even out of fresh ginger)
Saute diced garlic. Brown the meat in the garlic. Toss everything else in as you like and cook as you like. I served it over steamed brown rice. It was simple but yummy.
