This is another super quick and easy dish that is perfect for my lunch. Today I used leftover Beef Mince, but naturally you can use thinly sliced Beef. Pork is also good. Garlic Chives is garlicky, but I recommend to add Garlic as well. It’s a very simple dish, yet really yummy with Rice.


1 Serving


100g Beef Mince
1 small clove Garlic *finely chopped
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
30-40g Garlic Chives (Nira) *cut into 2-3 cm
1 serving Cooked Rice *warmed
Shichimi (Japanese Chilli Spice Mix) OR Ground Chilli

1 tablespoon Soy Sauce *1 tablespoon is 15ml
1 tablespoon Mirin
1/2 teaspoon Sugar *optional

  1. In a small bowl, combine the Sauce ingredients. Sugar is optional. Add it if you like the sauce sweeter.
  2. Heat Sesame Oil in a frying pan over medium high heat and cook Beef Mince and Garlic. When the Beef Mince changed the colour, add Garlic Chives and the Sauce, and stir until combined well.
  3. Half fill a bowl with warm Cooked Rice and cover it with the Beef mixture. Sprinkle with some Shichimi (Japanese Chilli Spice Mix) and enjoy.
