Beef and Tomato with Rice!

This is my family’s version of a classic Chinese dish. I grew up eating this on lunch days where we needed something fast and delicious. I had no idea that this would be considered ‘comfort food’ for Chinese people. I don’t ever eat this at restaurants. When I see other people get it though, it looks sort of weird because I am so used to my family’s version. Its actually really easy to make, with only a few ingredients. Anyone can whip this up in a second. If you don’t have much of an appetite, this dish could curb your hunger because its sweet and a little sour, and so freakin’ good!!! You can even add an egg in it to modify the traditional tomato and egg dish.

(1 serving)

3 tomatoes, sliced
Ground beef, however much you want.

Ginger, sliced
Garlic, chopped
Onions, sliced, optional
1-2 tbsp ketchup
1-2 tbsp soy sauce
1-2 tbsp oyster sauce
olive oil
1 cup cooked rice (I add turmeric give it some color)

1. Cook rice. If using turmeric, add a dash prior to steaming.
2. Add olive oil to pan. Stir fry the beef with garlic and ginger.

3. When beef is browned, add tomatoes, and onions if desired, along with the ketchup, soy sauce, and oyster sauce.

4. Cook until tomatoes are done.

5. Serve!
