Japanese Beef Brown Rice Bowl

When a ten-year old walks into the kitchen and says

“It smells like poo in here” You know it is going to be a delicious dinner!

To be fair, I always think that raw meat and meat cooking smells disgusting so I guess I can see where she is coming from.

Also to be fair, this home-made and incredibly simple Japanese Style Beef Brown Rice Bowl is absolutely amazing and thanks to the wonders of the crock pot makes the easiest healthy dinner.

( Well, it does have a ton of brown sugar in it but besides that…) After a long day of burning calories whither its hiking, trail running, cycling or Insanity workouts this easy crock pot dinner is awesome to come home too!

Japanese Beef Brown Rice Bowl

1 pound flank steak, cut into bite size pieces

1/3 cup arrowroot powder

1/2 cup brown sugar

3/4 cups soy sauce

3/4 cups water

1 tablespoon chopped garlic

1 tablespoon chopped ginger

2 carrots, peeled and chopped into bite size pieces

1 package shiitake mushrooms

1 cup spinach

2 tablespoons sriracha

1 green onion, diced

2 cups cooked brown rice

1 cup chopped red cabbage

1/8 cup chopped cashews

In a crock pot place the water, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and brown sugar.

Place the chopped steak in a Ziploc bag with the arrowroot flower and shake to cover the pieces. Add this to the liquid and cover on low for 3-5 hours.

One hour before serving add the sriracha, spinach and mushrooms.

Serve this in a bowl over the brown rice, raw cabbage and sprinkle the nuts and green onions on top.
