Ground beef can easily be bought in larger packages making it cheaper by the pound. I like to create different meals that are budget friendly but full of flavor. Especially using sauces that can be used again and again.

Garlic

Using foods like garlic and ginger during cold season in your food is helpful. Garlic contains allicin. Garlic has been used as an antiseptic, antibacterial, and antifungal agent.

Ginger

Ginger is a natural antibiotic as well. Researchers believe it can combat seasickness and nausea and to lower blood sugar levels. I personally have used it for nausea in tea form.

To make this gluten free replace the soy sauces with gluten free soy sauce. You can also use coco aminos in place of the soy sauces. The rest of the ingredients are gluten free.

When you add the carrots and onions remove from heat and cover with a lid. The steam will soften them in minutes. There is no need to sauté. Serve topped over jasmine rice.

I like to serve this hot and sometimes we make a good hot and sour soup before it. But Asian garlic beef bowl is filling enough on it’s own. You don’t have to use jasmine rice. Long grain white rice can be used as well.
