This was one of the first posts that appeared on my blog in 2010 (!) But now, with an updated picture and some better instructions. This is obviously a very flexible dish and you should use whatever ratios of meat:corn you like..Just don’t add too much soy sauce, because you don’t want brown looking corn. ENJOY!
This dish reminds me of elementary school. My childhood friend Ashley and I loved this dish, and would always be excited if one person or the other had it in their lunch. It was definitely considered a “good” lunch to get.
It’s a very simple dish, and I hope you will be as excited to eat it as we 7 year olds were! “Rou rou” was the kid-friendly way to say meat, which is just “rou,” and it’s hard to call this by the ‘grown up’ name, so say it with me- yu mi rou rou!
Also, I must apologize for the lack of recipe posts lately..My sister and niece visited over Labor Day Weekend, and I’ve been actually cooking lots, and actually hanging out with more people. There was also this one week I was so tired that I didn’t feel like doing much after I made dinner, except sleep 🙁 I also recently picked up knitting again and also started listening to The Count of Monte Cristo on ebook and doing more than just blog and cook…Anyway, with the Foldio2 that Mr. ABC Chef got me, I’m hopefully more prepared for winter and lack of daylight than I was last year! Thank you, dear husband of mine 😀
This picture is from several weeks ago, when I got almost 10 ears of corn in CSA, and reminisced about how good corn and beef go together, and resolved to buy beef and make this. I’m really sad I wasn’t able to get this post out until now, whereas it probably would have come in handy weeks ago! I also can’t believe it’s almost fall now and corn is probably almost done, if not already done for the season 🙁 Hopefully, you will still be inspired to make this with whatever corn is still being sold, or with whatever nice stash of corn in the freezer you have from your CSA!
Ground Beef and Corn
2 cups corn kernels: canned, frozen, or fresh
1/2 lb ground beef (any %)
A few dashes of soy sauce
1 stalk green onion, minced (optional)
1) Heat a pan over medium heat, and add just enough oil to coat the pan. Add the beef in, and break into little pieces quickly.
2) When the meat is 50-75% done (judge this by the proportion of pink to brown meat), add the corn and continue to sautee.
3) Turn the heat up, and stir fry on hot until meat has completely browned. Add soy sauce, and if you wish, salt according to taste.
4) After turning the heat off, stir in the green onions.
