Ground beef and vegetables

If you want something easy, quick and tasty to make, this ground beef and vegetables recipe might be for you. Even though I don’t normally like eating rice (unless it’s with Greek or Indian food), I like eating rice with this dish. I first started making it when I was an university student and didn’t want to spend a lot of time cooking food, but didn’t want to get take-out either. Usually I make it with ground beef, green peppers and udon noodles, but I changed it up this time because it’s what we had in our fridge during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Recipe

Level: Easy | Time: 30 min | Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 package of ground beef
  • 1 bell pepper
  • Cremini mushrooms (as much as you prefer)
  • White or red onion (as much as you prefer)
  • 1 tsp of minced or chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp of sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp of oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tsp of chili sauce (if you like spicy)
  • Black pepper (as much as you prefer)
  • Cayenne or chili pepper (if you like spicy)
  • 2 cups of rice

Directions

  1. Chop the bell pepper, cremini mushrooms and onion, and keep the onion separated.
  2. Heat a sauté pan to medium heat and add 1 tsp of sesame oil.
  3. Put the chopped onions and 1 tsp of garlic (although I like to add the garlic later on so that the garlic flavour is more prominent and not as cooked down) into the pan and sauté until the onion is translucent.
  4. Add the package of ground beef and separate the ground beef into crumbled-sized pieces with the spatula.
  5. Add 2 tbsp of oyster sauce, 1 tbsp of soya sauce and 1 tsp of chili sauce.
  6. Stir and cook the ground beef until it is no longer pink.
  7. Add the mushrooms and bell peppers, and season with black pepper and cayenne or chili pepper to taste.
  8. Stir until the mushrooms and bell peppers are cooked.
  9. Serve on top of cooked rice.
