The fam wanted burgers tonight and I have to admit, that beef smelled good! So I decided to make a little stirfry just for me.
First I browned fresh ginger and a large clove of garlic with 3 oz. of ground beef. ( I tracked 2 oz. since a lot of it was grease...cheap burger!)
Then I assembled my veggies. Since I was craving meat, I added a can of mushrooms to give it that meaty texture. 1 cup of bok choy sliced, 4 green onions and a cup of bean sprouts. I have to say, I was never much of a bean sprout person before but I find they are filling the pasta craving pretty well. My mind sees them as noodles...its not so smart lol.
I used sesame seeds, chinese five spice powder, and red pepper flakes for seasoning and made a sauce from soy sauce, rice vinegar and 1 tsp sesame oil.
So here is my dinner. Very filling, 300 calories for the whole plate, and my craving for hamburger was satisfied. YUM!
