Beef Tomato or Tomato Beef?! No matter what you call this dish, all that matters is that it's delicious!
Beef Tomato (as we call it) is our Papa's favorite. Like, "we need to make an entire separate pot for papa" favorite! :) Best thing about this dish is that it's simple to make. Some fresh veggies along with condiments you likely have in the refrigerator (yup, break out the ketchup!) and you're set.
It's a home-style hearty meal that can be done on a whim. Enjoy!
• 2.5 Lbs Teriyaki Beef (Cut into Strips)
• 2 TBL Vegetable Oil
• 2 Slivers Ginger Root, Crushed
• To Taste Salt
• 2 Whole Tomatoes, Medium Diced
• 1 Whole Onion, Medium Diced
• 2 Whole Bell Pepper, Medium Diced
• 1/2 Cup Ketchup
• 1/4 Cup Oyster Sauce
• 1/2 Cup Water (Add more if needed)
Place a large pan on medium-high heat.
Add oil and let heat, then add crushed ginger root and let ginger brown, about 2-minutes.
Add beef and season (to taste) with salt. Brown, about 5-8 minutes depending on thickness of beef.
Once beef is golden brown, add water, oyster sauce and ketchup and let simmer for 10-12 minutes or until sauce reduces and thickens. Note: Add more water (up to 1/4 cup more) if beef needs additional time to tenderize. This may increase the simmer time to 15-minutes for sauce to thicken.
Add tomatoes and simmer for 2-minutes, then add onions and cook for an additional minute. Finish by adding bell peppers and simmer for another 30-seconds.
Turn off fire and allow dish to sit in pan for a couple of minutes before serving.
Serve with hot rice and garnish with Akakai Green Onion for a quick yet delicious meal! For this recipe and more, visit painabyocean.com/recipes.
