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


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.
