Beef and onion is a perfect comfort food for me. I usually put it over a large bowl of rice and let the rice soak the sauce from the dish and mix them together when I eat. I used chopsticks today but to enjoy this dish, a large spoon is your friend.
I used a rice cooker to make the white rice for this dish. Rice cooker is an essential cooking appliance in a Chinese family’s kitchen. People living in south part of China almost eat white rice in their every meal. Here is a link to the rice cooker I am currently using.
Below is a summary of how I made this dish with pictures.I hope you enjoy making this savory beef and onion at home. If you like this recipe, please give a rating and share it with your friends!
