Oct 18: Supermarket Sushi; Stir-fried Ground Beef with Oyster Mushrooms, Green Beans and Oyster Sauce on Brown Rice


As we haven’t had it for a while, some sushi seemed like a good idea, and Whole Foods has our favorites. At $11.49 per serve it’s not the cheapest sushi in Los Angeles!


A modified version of Serious Eat’s recipe, Stir-Fried Beef With Snap Peas and Oyster Sauce we used ground beef this time. Because Ralph’s were out of snap peas we substituted green beans.

  • The ground beef cost $9.12 or $4.56 per serve
  • Green beans were $3.07 or $1.54 per serve
  • Mushrooms were $2.03 or $1.02 per serve
  • The various sauce and marinade ingredients add $1.00 per serve
  • Brown rice adds 45c per serve.

Although the dry aged ground beef makes this a relatively expensive dish, it was full of flavor for $8.57.
