Ginger Beef with Veggies with a Splash of Ponzu!
I want to introduce you to a dish that I cook regularly. I love it because it’s easy to cook and really delicious. The kids like it because of the snow peas and since it’s still in the pods, they can easily pick it up with the chop sticks. The benefit of this Ginger Beef with Veggies dish is that you can add different veggies to the mix. If your kids don’t like bell peppers, broccoli, carrots and peas make a delicious substitute!
This was the first time that I substituted soy sauce with yummy Ponzu sauce. Mitsukan Ponzu by Mizkan has no MSG and is really great with any kind of meats and especially when it’s used as a dipping sauce. Mitsukan Ponzu is a citrus seasoned soy sauce. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
Ginger Beef with Veggies with a splash of Ponzu
1 lb. of ground beef
1 piece of ginger, peeled
2 red bell pepper, cleaned and chopped into 1 inch squares
1 cup of snow peas
1/2 tsp of minced garlic
1 tbsp of Mitsukan Ponzu
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tbsp of oil
On medium heat, add the oil and cook the ground beef with the garlic and mix well. Stir well for 3 minutes.
Add the Ponzu and cook the ground beef until all meat is brown and full cooked. Drain the oil and add your bell peppers to the beef and sauté.
Add your ginger. I added a big chunk, just so the beef can absorb the flavor. Once the food is fully cooked, remove the chunk of ginger and throw it away.
Add the snow peas and mix all your ingredients!
Once all veggies are cooked, it’s time to plate! Get a bowl and add 1 cup of cooked white rice.
Add the Ginger Beef and Veggies and serve. Enjoy!!!
Trust me, your kids will love it. Remember you can always play around with the veggies in case your kids don’t like the veggies used here.
