Beef & Tomato over Rice Recipe

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.

This is a quick meal. The ingredients are simple & if you use brown rice instead, it’ll be a pretty healthy option.
