String Beans with Ground Meat

Another delicious dish inspired by Harumi’s recipe book that both my husband and I love to cook for a cozy and easy dinner.

String Beans with Ground Meat

This recipe only shows one of its many versions.

Instead of green beans you can use the vegetables you like the most (personally I also like the combination with aubergines).  

And also, if you are searching to slowly reduce the amount of meat in our diet, you can use Tofu instead of meat (you can find a perfect Tofu recipe here link).

Because my husband sometimes want to eat meat, I will show you the the omnivorous version.

Is a dish that can be served as a simple accompaniment to steamed rice, or to give an extra umami flavour on the top of your bowl of steaming noodles. Personally, I think it’s a very good component of the obento too!
