Beef and Mushroom Gravy

DSCN1623

This Beef and Mushroom Gravy is one of my new, and most favorite gravy’s. This time I made it with jasmine rice and it was so perfect together! Sometimes mashed potatoes get too over rated and annoying. I got this recipe from my mom. I stopped by her house one evening and she made this gravy with rice. It was so comforting to eat after a very long day, I even got seconds! My family really enjoyed it too when I made it… It was all gone in one day! And my hubby said that this is one of his new favorite dishes and that it is definitely ” Blog worthy” lol. It is really easy and fast to make, but you can’t tell by how yummy it is! 🙂

Directions:

1) Do all the prep work. Start by thoroughly washing the meat and set it aside. Then wash the mushrooms, and carrots. Cut the mushrooms into thin slices. Peel the carrots and finely shred them with a grater. Dice the onion into small pieces. Set aside in separate containers. Cut the beef into small pieces.

2) In a Wok or large frying pan, heat 3  Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil on Medium-High heat (I did 6.0). Then throw in the beef. Generously season it with salt/pepper. Mix every once in a while to make sure it cooks evenly on all sides. Boil 4 Cups of water in a tea kettle.

3) When the beef is not yet cooked through all the way but still has some pink in it, Add the diced onion. When the onion becomes soft and translucent, add the shredded carrots.

4) When the carrots become soft, add the mushrooms. Then when the mushrooms get soft, add the ketchup and mix very well. Then Immediately add 2-4 cups of water to the Wok (or Frying Pan) depending on how much liquid you like in yours.
