So I choose a meat first. I decided on beef…but for some reason I was having trouble finding a simple ground beef recipe that we haven’t had yet in the cookbooks…
Nothing…well that’s not completely true. I found a few in the casserole cookbook but none were sounding appetizing.
So I opted to one of my previous simple recipes…
So it says Korean…but since I didn’t have the right ingredients, when I first made it, I kind of Americanized it….so I apologize to the Koreans or foodies in the world that may cringe at some of my changes. Sorry. 😓
So first things first…defrost the beef…
This is from the cow we bought…the meat doesn’t truly taste different to me, but when I cook it, it has a nice smell to it.
Funny story about our rice cooker. My brother didn’t end up wanting this rice cooker when he went back for his second year of college…so I took it. 🤓 And it still lives!! It’s about 4 years old. When it eventually dies I will be very sad…😞
Anyways back on topic. Rice is cooking!!
Can you guess what I decided to do while I waited for the meat to cook?
It is not my blog unless doing dishes is mentioned at some point…
You know when you cook something so often that you no longer measure…that would be my green beans. Some butter, green beans, some salt, a little pepper, a lite sprinkle of garlic powder…and a five finger pinch of brown sugar. Mix it up and let it simmer until you are done with everything else…
Yeah it means one more dish…but to be honest it was the same pot I used to boil Elizabeth’s noddles for Mac n cheese…so it was already used. Another confession…I just wiped it with a paper towel after lunch…But all it had was a couple stuck noodles. 🤪
Now I’m hungry. I wasn’t really hungry when I started. But now I’m a HUNGRY THING!!
We get a sushi rice. It’s the best! Costco!!
Green onions just add that extra yum! to certain foods. I usually add them to anything hat sounds remotely good.
I’ve been trying to be better at my rice consumption. I now measure out my rice. It also makes the plate look pretty and professional…but honestly it’s just for measuring purposes.
See this was a normal cooking process before I got the cookbooks. My google inspired cookbook is huge. I gave my siblings a copy for Christmas this last year.
Even though it’s a bit simple it was delicious!!
I guess I’ll rate them since this is a recipe after all…
Looks Like Picture: 10! I do remember the picture. It always looks the same.
Taste: 10! I always love this meal. It’s a little sweet, spicy, and salty. Everything you usually crave rolled into one recipe. In case you try it…if you do not like spicy don’t add the red pepper flakes. Or maybe just half… also my hubby wanted seconds but again I said no. Just because I knew ice cream was in the near future…
Easiness: 10! It’s pretty much an add everything together and wait. Also since I use a rice cooker it makes this meal extremely easy!
Also to give you an idea of amount of beef mixture it makes… I had about a small heaped 1/2 cup. The hubby…3/4 cup?? I think. And there probably 1 cup leftover. So for two people, it’s a one dinner and one lunch kind of meal.
Hopefully this recipe made you hungry. Usually I won’t post the recipe but since this one is a recipe I tweaked to work fo me I shared it.
Have a great dinner tonight!!
