If you are Asian, you’ll most likely have eaten Beef & Tomato over rice at least once in your life. This is a popular dish in Taiwanese culture. My mom makes a pretty good version, so I got this recipe from her. There’s only one problem…she never measures anything, making it hard for me to replicate anything she makes.
So, this is my interpretation of my mom’s home cooking.
Beef & Tomato over Rice – by Mom (feeds 2)
1 large tomato
1 beef patty (or ground beef or beef slices)
1 tblspn ketchup
1 teaspn white vinegar
Leftover rice (or cook 1/2 cup of rice)
Dice your tomatoes. Heat up a frying pan with some oil. Add tomatoes & cook it down until they are almost soft.
Add the ketchup & vinegar & mix too incorporate.
Add the beef patty & break up the pieces. Cook meat thoroughly.
Crack an egg in the center & mix into the tomato.
Serve over rice. There’s always leftover rice in the fridge so I would just reheat it.
This is a quick meal. The ingredients are simple & if you use brown rice instead, it’ll be a pretty healthy option.
