Asian Beef over Rice

Advertisements

This Asian beef is easy to make and can serve lots of people. This recipe is also great for using up leftover veggies or to help use some things up from the freezer. This Asian beef is flavorful and pairs great with the rice. I like to place about 1/4 cup of meat on 1 cup of rice then stir it all together before eating. This ratio is my favorite and the flavor is in every bite! This recipe is very similar to Korean beef, but really it was just a way for me to use up leftover beef dumpling filling from the previous night. This recipe makes 4 adult servings.

Aldi Butter Chicken Curry Sauce Review

Advertisements

I bought this butter chicken sauce from Aldi about two months ago, and I was just feeling in the mood for some curry and thought it was a great opportunity. This recipe is simple and super fast! This curry is labeled as mild, but it is still spicy and may not be suitable if you/your family can only handle a little spice. Serving this curry over rice is a must, and definitely helps with the heat. This jar makes delicious curry with a few spicy bites mixed in! This recipe makes 5 adult sized servings.

Fried Rice

Fried Rice is so easy and can be made in so many different ways. This fried rice has a little bit of everything. I used up the remaining ingredients from the hot pot, but I also added new flavors. Fried rice is a great way to use leftovers and still be able to feed your family. For this recipe, I used two meats, sliced venison steak and diced bacon. I cooked my bacon before adding it to the dish, so I did have to add a bit of bacon fat just to keep everything from burning. As for veggies, I used a bit of everything. I used sliced mushrooms, sliced water chestnuts, diced cabbage, sliced carrot, sliced onion, and diced bell pepper. I also used 6-8 cups of rice in this dish and it was still very flavorful. If your really wanted to feed a crowd and stretch the dish, you could easily use 10-12 cups of cooked rice. This recipe makes 8 adult sized servings.

Pork Loin with Sweet and Sour Sauce

This recipe is easy and delicious. The sweet and sour sauce has a bit of red pepper in it, but with the added pineapple, it was barely noticeable. I poured the sauce over my plated food and it was very good. I would recommend it. You can make as much of this as you need for your occasion. Since it was just a dinner for two, we made the sauce, and sliced up one thick slice from the pork loin. We also made about 4 cups of rice, and all of that gave us 3 servings. There was tons of sauce left over, enough for 10+ servings, so any extra sauce will be frozen. I also topped the dish with a bit of chives for some color.

Spicy Bean Curry with Rice

Advertisements

Curry is an easy and warming meal. Not only does is have great depth in flavor, but it is often times very healthy and a very filling dish. So I figured, why not add some beans to my curry. I took inspiration from southern rice and beans, but I added some leftover cooked sausage for a bit more protein. The only note I have with this dish is to add the spices a bit at a time if you are nervous of flavor. You can easily taste it as you add them, and also, the earlier you add them, the more the heat from the cayenne and hot sauce will cook out. This recipe maked 7 adult sized servings.

What You Will Need

  • 1 Pint Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 Can Northern Beans
  • 1/2 Onion, Sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Cumin, Curry powder, Ground Mustard, Cayenne Powder, Ground Paprika, and Ground Cinnamon, Alter to taste
  • 1/2 Tbsp Hot sauce, Optional
  • 1/2 lb Cooked Ground Sausage
  • 2 cups Beef Broth
  • Large Saucepan
  • 6 Cups Cooked Rice

Directions

1. Add all your ingredients but the broth, sausage and rice to the large saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer. Add your broth and cook until sauce becomes thick, about 30 minutes.
