Hello everyone! I recently made this for my family. I already had most of the ingredients on-hand. All I had to buy were a zucchini and the shiitake caps. I thought I had sushi rice, but I was out so I used regular white quick rice and it substituted just fine.
- 1 1/2 cups sushi rice
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon peeled, minced fresh ginger
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons chili-garlic paste (such as Sriracha)
- 1 zucchini, cut into matchsticks
- 2 cups shiitake mushroom caps (1/4 pound), thinly sliced
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 1 pound ground beef
- 4 large eggs (optional)
Directions1. Prepare rice: Combine 2 cups water and rice in a medium, lidded saucepan. Bring to a soft boil. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat, 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 10 minutes. (if using another type of rice, just follow the directions on the package.)
2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, blend rice vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cornstarch, sesame oil and chili-garlic sauce. Set aside.
3. Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add vegetables and 3 tablespoons water. Cook over medium-high heat for 4 minutes, or until just softened. Remove to a bowl and keep warm.
4. Crumble beef into same skillet. Cook 5 minutes, breaking apart with a spoon. Add sauce mixture and cook 2 minutes.
5. Meanwhile, in a second skillet, fry eggs, if using: Coat skillet with nonstick spray; heat over medium to medium-high heat. Crack 2 eggs into skillet. Cook 1 minute, then flip. Cook 1 more minute. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining 2 eggs. Place a mound of rice into 4 bowls. Top each with 1/2 cup meat mixture and 1/3 cup vegetables. Finish each with a fried egg, if using.
*Wal-Mart was out of Shiitake mushrooms, so I used Portabella and they worked great. I also discovered I was out of cornstarch, so I used about 1 tbs of flour.
Here are my lovely ingredients:
|For the sauce. FYI: Siracha is hot, so beware.|
|Ground beef and rice, I was feeding 2 people so I only used 1/3 of the beef.|
|Time to put it all together.|
