When Gary tries a recipe, he likes to make it a few times until he *thinks* he’s perfected it. It’s a good way for him to learn his way around the kitchen, but that means we have to keep this meal in rotation at least once a week until he thinks it’s perfect.
This recipe is loosely adapted from a beef and tomato recipe his dad makes. It’s one of the comfort foods he’s grown up with, so who am I to argue.
Ground Turkey and Tomatoes
Adapted from: Gary’s Dad
Made by Gary
1/2 lb ground turkey (you can also use ground beef or sliced beef)
1 Tbsp Chinese rice wine
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp sugar, divided
1/2 Tbsp olive oil
2 tomatoes, halved then sliced
2 Tbsp oyster sauce
1. In a small bowl, combine ground turkey, rice wine, soy sauce, 1/2 Tbsp sugar and olive oil. Marinate for about 20 minutes. Cut the tomatoes in half, then slice into half inch wide pieces.
2. In a skillet, brown the turkey and set aside.
3. Heat a wok with a little oil. Add tomatoes and stir fry until softened, about 2-3 minutes. Add oyster sauce and remaining sugar, stir, then add turkey. Stir until combined. Add a little water, cover and steam for 1-2 minutes.
4. Transfer to dish and serve. Serve with rice.
