Soboro Beef

This delicious dinner comes together with a handful of simple pantry staples, but it makes you feel like you’re eating something fancy. A backdrop of delicate flavors allows the browned earthiness of the ground beef to shine through, and a garnish of green onions adds a zippy freshness. Plus, this dish pulls off a nifty magic trick: it’s both elevated and super kid friendly. As you sit down to eat, you’ll wonder … did I really whip this up or did I get takeout from a Japanese restaurant?
