Although there was a period we had congee quite regularly, but we haven’t had this since March of 2017! It was time to give it another go with Brown Rice Congee and Ground Beef with Shiitake Mushrooms and Greens.

We substituted Chard for the greens, and added a poached egg.

  • The mushrooms were $3.99 or $2.00 per serve
  • Brown rice adds 50c per serve
  • Stock adds $1.00 per serve
  • The Chard was $2.49 and we used about half, or 63c per serve
  • Add 35 for garlic, ginger and seasoning
  • Eggs add 51c per serve.

Dinner tonight was very satisfying with good flavor, and cost $4.99 per serve.
