A recipe I found on www.allrecipes.com that I modified to fit my allergies and our tastes. We like our oriental food saucy, so I made extra sauce and added water chestnuts for DD. This has a kick to it from the ginger, red pepper flakes and the chili paste. Makes 6 1-cup servings. This is a WW friendly recipe, if you use 96% lean ground beef. Points value per serving as calculated on the WW website is 3.
- cooking spray
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 3 cups bell peppers, chopped (I used a combination of red, yellow & green)
- 1 large onion, thinly sliced
- 2 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons fresh gingerroot, minced
- 2 tablespoons dried parsley
- 1⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup beef stock
- 3 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 1 teaspoon chili paste
- 1 teaspoon gluten-free Worcestershire sauce (Lea & Perrins is GF)
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- Spray a large skillet with cooking spray.
- Over over medium heat, cook and stir the ground beef until evenly browned.
- Drain and set aside.
- Add the peppers, onion, garlic and ginger.
- Season with parsley, red pepper, and salt.
- Cook and stir until tender.
- Return the beef to the skillet.
- In a small bowl, mix together the beef stock, soy sauce, molasses, chile paste, and Worcestershire sauce.
- Cook until heated through and sauce comes to a boil.
- Combine water and cornstarch and add to skillet.
- Stir constantly until sauce is thickened.
- Serve over the cooked rice.
After all of the veggies are sliced this is super quick & easy. I opted to use lean ground turkey, slice the peppers, and throw in a fresh jalapeno too. I served with lettuce and napa cabbage leaves for rolling instead of rice and was happy with the meal. Thank you for sharing this colorful & tasty recipe!
We thought this was good, but expected there would be a bigger Asian flavour. We had all the ingredients on hand which made it fast and easy. Thanks.
5/13 A nice and easy dinner with an Asian flair. Thanks for posting.<br/>9/13 I didn't realize I made this before, my daughter insists I did, she was right. It was a winner agin for the 2nd time. I did want to add a new serving option. My son put his rice & beef ins a flour tortilla, kinda like a moo shoo beef! My daughter would like me to use chicken next time, so I'll give that a whirl next. I'll boost up the heat factor more next time, I prefer to use 1 T+ Sambal Oelek in place of the chili flakes and chili paste.
