Taco Rice

This is has a bit long name that I have no idea how to say...which is Okinawa Takoraisu. I like taco rice's much easier to say! I thought this recipe sounded interesting so I couldn't wait to try it.

I had picked up a package of beefalo at the farmer's market...pastured raised local meat! I figured with the price of meat lately I might as well get some that is healthier for us. We couldn't really tell the difference between this and regular beef.

Taco Rice-shared from Siggy Spice
1 lb ground meat
1 onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp chili powder
3 tbsp soy sauce(I used tamari)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
4 cups steamed rice
2 cups lettuce, chopped
1-2 tomatoes, chopped
sour cream
shredded cheese(I used sharp cheddar)

Brown beef, drain if needed. Add in onion and garlic and cook for about 5 mins until soft. Stir in chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and soy sauce. Let simmer until liquid reduces. 

Spread about a 1/2 a cup of rice on plate. Top with some meat mixture, tomato, lettuce, cheese, sour cream and salsa. Serve and enjoy!

**I actually really liked this! Like siggy mentioned the soy sauce is subtle but the combination is delicious! I really liked it so did K. A did eat the meat but that was about it.


  1. this sounds good. I'm bookmarking this one

  2. So glad you liked it :) We had it again this week, and I am still so amazed at how much I like the combination of flavors and textures!
