Ingredients
Stir-Fry:
  • 1 TBS Oil neutral flavored such as vegetable or canola
  • ½ small Red Onion finely chopped
  • 1 pound Ground Beef *
  • 3/4 Cup Mushrooms finely chopped* (button or baby bella)
  • 3 small cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 tsp Ginger grated
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
Sauce:
  • ¼ Cup Hoisin Sauce
  • 3 TBS Honey
  • 3 TBS Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1 TBS Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil
Bowls:
  • 4 Cups Cooked Rice long grain is best, such as jasmine or basamati
Optional for topping:
  • Carrot cut into matchsticks

Instructions
  1. Make the sauce: In a small bowl whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce. Set aside.
  2. Stir-fry: Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in the onion and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until starting to soften. Add in the beef, and season generously with salt and pepper. Sauté until almost browned, breaking it up as you go, about 4 minutes. Add in the mushrooms and continue to stir-fry for an additional 3-4 minutes. Add in the garlic, ginger and season again with salt and pepper.* Cook until aromatic, about 1 minute. 
  3. Add in the sauce and cook for an additional 2 minutes, or until everything is coated and the beef is cooked through. Taste and adjust for seasoning with salt and pepper.

  4. Assemble the bowls: Add rice to the bottom of serving bowls and top with beef. Garnish with desired toppings and serve. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes
  1. This recipe utilizes ground beef, and while you can use any ground beef you would like, I used lean ground sirloin. If you use regular ground beef or ground chuck, you may need to wipe the excess fat from the pan after browning the beef and before adding in the mushrooms. Use your best judgement!
  2. The recipe calls for finely chopped mushrooms, and I highly recommend using white button or cremini (baby bella) mushrooms. Make sure you do NOT soak the mushrooms to clean them. Instead, use a damp paper towel to wipe any dirt from the mushroom, or give them a very quick, light rinse with cool water and pat dry.
  3. Make sure you season the stir-fry with salt and pepper in layers, as you cook - i.e. season the onions, season the beef, season the ginger/garlic, season the sauce. Adding salt and pepper in layers will ensure the dish as an entirety is seasoned properly!
