Daily meals doesn't have to be fancy all the time. But if I can make one in less time and effort, why not.
Every week I spend an hour planning for our 7-day meal. It's easier that way to budget and check if I'm serving nutritious dishes for my family.
I'll be sharing my menu for next on a different blog post. For now, just to give you an idea of what simple meal I cook for not more than 30 minutes, here's a recipe of Crispy Chilli Beef.
250 grams of beef (sliced)
2-3 birs eye chillies (depends on how hot you want it to be)
3 cloves of garlic
3 thumb sized ginger
1/4 tsp chilli flakes (optional)
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp soy sauce (dark or light)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp sugar
250 grams corn flour
1 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp ketchup
5 tbsp mirin (sweet japanese vinegar)
4 tbsp honey
I normally marinate the beef for 10 minutes. Then deep fry it and drain excess cooking oil. In a different pan, transfer the fried beef. Finally pour over the sauce to the crispy beef, stir in the chillies and let it simmer for 3-5 minutes. Serve with boiled rice.
Yes, that is so easy. So why not give it a try. I'm sure you will love it.
