Beef Bowls

While living in Miami I had tried my very first beef bowl and it blew my mind. I just had to make some. So I will be attempting to recreate a traditional beef bowl today.

Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • 5oz. thinly sliced beef (I will be using veal, didn’t slice it thin enough)
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 oz. (2 tsp.) ginger root, grated
  • 2 servings of rice
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. sake
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 cups hot water

Step 1: In a large pan, add in the onion and hot water and bring to a boil.

Step 2: Allow to boil for 7 minutes, or until the onion is soft.

Step 3: Add the sake, sugar, salt, soy sauce, ginger and beef; stir, cover, and boil for 8-10 minutes over medium heat.

Step 4: Taste and add more sugar and/or soy sauce if needed.

Step 5: Serve over the steamed rice.

Notes: Leftover broth can be used for dipping.

Hotdogs and Pasta

Today I didn’t really feel like making a time consuming meal. Instead I found a jar of pasta sauce and some hotdogs in the refrigerator and decided to make them together. This recipe can use any brand of pasta sauce, but it has to be a red sauce of some sort. I prefer Prego because it’s a sweeter flavor sauce.

Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • 1 (24 oz) bottle of pasta sauce (I will be using Prego’s Chunky Garden: Tomato, Onion, and Garlic)
  • 1 lb of pasta (spaghetti for this)
  • 1 medium onion (sliced)
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 5 hotdogs (cut into bite sizes)

Step 1: In a large pot, heat the oil and add the onions

Step 2: Cook the onions until they are caramelized

Step 3: While onions are caramelizing, boil the pasta for 10-12 minutes or until al dente and then drain

Step 4: Add the garlic and cook till aromatic

Step 5: Add the pasta sauce and hotdogs and cook until the hotdogs are fully cooked

Step 6: Place the cooked and drained pasta into the hot sauce and toss together.

Step 7: Serve hot.
