Easy Taco Filling with Chunky Ra-yu!

Easy Taco Filling with Chunky Ra-yu!

A super-easy taco filling style meat sauce made with chunky ra-yu. The taste of the tomatoes is quite prominent in this delicious sauce.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Onion
1/4
Vegetable oil
1/2 tablespoon
Red chili pepper
as desired (1 pepper, or to your liking)
Mince beef
100 g
Chunky ra-yu
2 teaspoons
Tomato
1 medium
Salt
1/2 teaspoon
Lettuce leaves
1 head

Steps

1. Finely chop the onion, remove the seeds from the tomato and dice into 8 mm cubes. Remove the seeds from the red chili pepper and tear into small pieces with your hands.
2. Heat vegetable oil in a small, deep frying-pan, and stir fry the onion and red chili pepper over medium-low heat. Once the onions become translucent, add the mince beef and continue to cook.
3. Season with a little bit of salt and pepper. Using cooking chopsticks, break up the mince meat as you fry.
4. Once the meat is cooked through, reduce the heat to low and add the chunky ra-yu. Fry for another minute.
5. Add the tomato, stir fry for 30 seconds, and then it's done. You can either wrap this in lettuce leaves, or scoop it up with tortilla chips.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to cook something with leftover ra-yu. I wondered if I could make a Mexican salsa dip, but it didn't turn out like salsa.
