Old Family Recipe and a peek at the PRIZE

Here's something I've never done on my blog: Shared a recipe. This is a dish commonly served when we were growing up but, to my knowledge, has never before been published. (You saw it first HERE! LOL!) It wasn't unusual for my Dad and his friends to make up recipes, being in a new country and away from the familiar vegetables grown in the Philippines. This is one of them! It's tasty, colorful, and you can kind of make up whatever you want to add to it as you go along. We serve it over rice; no other side dishes are necessary. Ingredients: (Everything is an approximate measurement, by the way, and will serve about four or five people.) 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef small onion, chopped (you can also use several green onions, including the bulb and the green top) 1 can (or pint or quart - told you, everything is approximate) stewed tomatoes 1 can peas (or a cup or so of frozen peas) **** The items below can be included or omitted - I included them in last night's concoction: 1 small potato, diced 1 small to medium bell pepper (any color, sliced or diced) 2 or 3 carrots, sliced Brown the ground beef in a large skillet. Add in the chopped onion. Stir in everything else, cooking until any fresh veggies you added are cooked. Serve over a bed of rice. Add soy sauce to season to taste. Easy, huh? Let me know how you like it! And, here's a peek at the bottle that the winner of this month's drawing will receive: As usual, the winner will also receive several surprise goodies! And all you have to do to qualify is leave a comment on this blog! Good luck!

Okay, I want some of that food. Got any left for me? That looks good. I think I'll fix that when my son and his family come to visit.

I know you are a great cook, so trust the recipe completely. It'd be nice if you could come visit Kansas and fix it yourself though. It would taste SO much better if you did! :)

I wanted to ask something and forgot to do it.

Could you use teriyaki instead of soy? Have you ever tried that? What do you think?

Love, Janet

Hey there, Janet! I have tried teriyaki but found it to be a little too sweet for my taste. You can always add the soy sauce or the teriyaki after you've transferred a portion to your plate. Do a half and half thing; you may like the teriyaki better!
