Asian Inspired Ground Beef and Rice

Updated October 2020

I love most all Asian influenced foods ... they are typically loaded with veggies and are quick and easy to put together. They make an awesome weeknight supper, ready in just about no time at all. This one "spices things up" a bit using red pepper flakes, which you can omit if you want to, no biggie, or add more to your taste. It's totally up to you ... I just like it hot and spicy!

1 lb. grass-fed ground beef (pork, chicken/turkey, or lamb)
2 tsp. minced garlic
2 stalks celery, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 cup shredded cabbage
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 tsp. red pepper flakes (or more to taste)
1 tbls. butter
2 cups cooked rice

Brown ground beef; drain and set aside. In the same skillet stir fry garlic, onion, celery, carrots and cabbage with brown sugar, soy sauce and red pepper flakes until veggies are al dente, about 5 minutes. Toss in frozen peas, cover and cook about 3 minutes. Stir in cooked ground beef and serve immediately over hot, cooked rice.

Yield:  4 servings
