Chinese Style Ground Beef and Peas

Well, not sure how “authentically Chinese” this is, but picked it up a long time ago from a Chinese cookbook author!  As I’ve mentioned, I do not like ground beef, but I actually don’t mind this for dinner occasionally. My kids like it a lot.

  • 1 pound (454 grams) lean or extra lean ground beef
  • 2 Tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons non-GMO vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • a large handful (or 2) frozen green peas, thawed
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • Salt, to taste

In a small bowl, combine the beef with soy sauce and pepper. Mix lightly to blend well.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until golden, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Add beef and cook, stirring to break up lumps, until meat loses its pink colour, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in peas and water. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt, to taste.

Serve with hot rice.
