This ginger and peanut butter beef bowl recipe is one of my favourites for an easy and tasty lunch that is very balanced and full of nutrients. I love the buddha bowl trend, which we see everywhere on social media. This Asian influenced and hot version of a buddha bowl is simple and deliciously addictive.
I had a ginger root to use up, the reason why I selected beef as they are just about the perfect combo. I enjoy eating beef with either black or white rice noodles. Concerning the veggies, I adapt it to the season and try to optimise with what I already have at home, this time leek, parsnip and mushrooms. Enjoy making this ginger and peanut butter beef bowl.
Ginger and Peanut Butter Beef BowlPrint Recipe
- 1 serving of rice vermicelli
- 120 grams of ground beef
- 100 grams of mushrooms
- 1/8 cup of boiled broccoli
- 1/2 leek
- 1/2 parsnip
- 1/2 small onion
- A small piece of ginger
- 1 scallion (white and light green)
- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon of peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon of olive or grape-seed oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Soak the rice vermicelli for 10 to 15 minutes in cold water.
- While soaking, prepare your vegetables. Cut the leek, parsnip and mushrooms into (very) thin slices. Heat a pan with a dash of olive oil, add the parsnip, cook for 3 minutes and add the leeks. Cover for a few minutes before letting the water evaporate. Set aside on low heat.
- Cook the mushrooms in another pan with some oil until browned. Set aside.
- Put some salted water to boil and cook the vermicelli as indicated (usually 4 minutes). Strain.
- Finely chop the ginger and slowly stir it in a pan with a dash of oil. Put a little bit of salt on the raw meat. Turn the pan on high heat to grill the beef and take it out of the pan.
- On the same pan: deglaze with the soy sauce, turn the heat back down, add the peanut butter, stir, and put the beef back in it. Cover for around 2 to 3 minutes.
- In your bowl, put first the rice vermicelli and place the vegetables on top of it. Add the beef and top up with the broccoli and ginger peanut butter sauce. Add some pepper, chopped scallions and parsley for extra seasoning.
