I am so excited to share this beef pepper rice recipe with you guys now that I got my hubby’s two thumbs up! Have you had beef pepper rice from Pepper Lunch? I tried it once and was hooked! The dish is so flavourful and it’s so fun “cooking” the dish at the table. This beef pepper rice recipe is my take on the one from Pepper Lunch. It’s easy to make and the garlic soy sauce gives it an extra punch of flavour. Let me know if you’ve tried this recipe in the comments below or on Instagram #jansfoodsteps.
I ate mapo tofu a lot when growing up but never learned how to cook it. In fact, it wasn’t until a year or so ago that I took an interest in cooking Chinese food. If I knew that mapo tofu is so easy to make, I’d have learned how to make it sooner! Could you believe that with only a few ingredients and some pantry items, you can make a delicious dish that goes well with rice?
I love looking at bento boxes on Pinterest and Instagram. Photos of delicious and creative bento always make me want to create my own. So during my chemo days, I decided to give it a try and made this simple Korean bibimbap bento box. Surprisingly it turned out to be one of Mr. Chau’s favourite dishes!
If you’re not familiar with bibmibap, it’s a Korean rice bowl dish where steamed rice is topped with various sautéed and seasoned vegetables and/or protein. Usually, hot pepper paste or hot sauce is added, but you can omit this if you don’t like spicy food. Before you eat, you’re supposed to mix all everything together. So every bite will have a little bit of everything. Yum!
