Thai Beef

winter 2012-13 007

And when I say beef – I mean “beef.” If you’re like me, the holidays are a little rough on your waistline. If it isn’t the cookies, or the candy, its the parties with plates full f bacon-wrapped somethings. Its nice to eat something lighter, something vegetarian. Which brings my first ever brand name: Morningstar crumbles. I’m not being sponsored. I’m just a fan. They don’t taste like meat, but they are tasty. Here’s our favorite way to eat them:

Thai “Beef”

1 package “crumbles”

4 red chili peppers, seeded and cut into strips

3 garlic cloves, sliced

oil

2 tablespoons fish sauce

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 1/3 cup brown jasmine rice

1 can coconut milk

1/3 cup water

1. Combine rice, milk, water and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered for 30 mins until done.

2. Saute chili peppers and garlic in oil until fragrant.

3. Add “beef.”

4. Add sauces, stir until combined.

Serve with lime wedges.

  1. Thanks for this recipe– looks so so good. And I’m going to pick up the Morningside crumbles!! I’m a big fan of boca burgers, but haven’t gone beyond that. So I’m excited to try your suggestion! thanks.
