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.
