Taco Rice

IMG_1473

I think this one’s a Japanese modified dish originally from Okinawa.

The ingredients are basically the same as the ingredients with a typical Mexican taco but it’s just on top of rice. It’s like a Japanese version taco.

It’s very easy to make so I hope you enjoy it!!


 

Ingredients (2servings)

-250g minced beef

-1/2 onion

-30g lettuce

-1 tomato

-10g corn

-1 tbsp nutmeg

-rice (basmati rice preferred)

-mayo

-cheese

-salsa (any salsa that you can find in the market)

-parsley flakes

☆Seasoning for the taco meat

-1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

-3 tbsp ketchup

-3 tbsp sriracha sauce

-2 tbsp curry powder

-salt and pepper for adjustment

 

Method

1.Finely chop the onions , cut the lettuce into thin strips, and cut the tomato into small dices.

2.Season the minced beef with nutmeg and then pan fry it without adding oil to the pan and cook until brown. Then, cook the minced onion until it becomes transparent. (the beef and the onion will release its juice so no cooking oil needed. Just a little bit healthier.)

3.After it is cooked, add all of the ingredients to season the taco meat. Since you will add some salsa to it, you don’t have to make it too spicy. (the proportion of the seasoning is based on my preference. I like it spicy but make sure that you always taste it until you find your desired taste while cooking.)

4.If you have a small Japanese bowl like this, put the cooked basmati rice into it and then flip it over to another bigger bowl. Decorate the bowl with lettuce, tomatoes, corn.

5.Top it up with the taco meat and finish it off with some mayonnaise, salsa, grated cheese and parsley flakes in this order.

Then it’s ready to go!

(If you have, you can enjoy it with some tortilla chips!)

You can also add some diced avocado to this dish and it will become more enjoyable!

Make sure you don’t overcook the rice:)

Bon appetit!!
