Easy Asian ground meat with veggies

This is an incredibly easy meal to make, that serves several people on a budget. 

Prep time: 0-5 min Cook time: 20-30 min Serves: 4 or more


1/2 cup of rice per person
1 pound of veggies of choice (I love green beans or broccoli)
1 pound of ground meet of choice
1 tbsp of sesame oil
1/4 cup of soy or tamari sauce
2 tbsp of rice wine vinegar (red wine vinegar works nicely also)
1 tbsp of honey
2-4 cloves of minced garlic
1/4 to 1 inch of fresh ginger minced or grated. (you can use powdered) 
Asian hot sauce to taste 


Cook the rice however you like, I do 1 cup of rice with 2 and 1/4 to 1/3 cups of water boiled then simmered until it is done. I just kind of guess basically, you may want to follow more specific directions though. 

In a pan or wok cook any onions and hard veggies first. Add in the ground meet and let it start cooking, then add in all the flavors (everything but any other veggies). Once the meat is cooked add in any other veggies you want cooked. I usually add in the frozen veggies now on top and put a lid on. Any water that comes off of the veggies helps to make a sauce. You can always defrost any veggies before, I just always forget and this works fine. add your meat and veggies to some rice and eat up. I never said it was classy, just delicious ;)
