Recipe: Ginger Garlic Beef with Cilantro

Sorry, no picture. Got everything done and on the table, served the kids, wife, then myself and just started chowing down -forgot all about taking a pic. 😦
**Note: I prepped and started 2 cups of brown rice in the rice cooker before getting busy on the Beef mixture. Taking my time with the recipe below, as well as making salad, I was finished all the prep and cooking about the time the rice finished.
The Ingredients
1 package of ground beef (tonight’s was about 1.3 lbs and 80% lean)
Ginger root, about a thumb-sized piece (peeled and finely diced/minced – added some of this to the rice before starting it in the rice cooker)
3 cloves of garlic
1 carrot, medium
salt/sea salt
black pepper
fresh cilantro
Lemon Juice
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Worcestershire Sauce
Prep and Cooking
1. Finely chop/dice/mince the ginger and garlic
2. Julienne the carrots into small pieces
3. Add the garlic, ginger, carrots, pepper, and salt to the ground beef while browning it
4. Add five or six splashes of Worcestershire Sauce, a small squeeze of lemon juice, a splash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and less than a teaspoon of sugar
5. Cover and let simmer 5 to 10 minutes
6. Add the chopped cilantro to the mixture and continue to simmer until rice is done
6. Serve over rice (brown or white…which ever strikes your fancy)
I guess it was good. Everyone liked it and my younger daughter didn’t complain once about the brown rice which she claims to not like.
