Braised Ground Beef with Oyster Sauce
Braised Ground Beef with Oyster Sauce. Here is another experimental economically simple yummy dish using the lowly ground beef. Cooking is basically similar to Beef Pares or maybe to Braised Beef. The main difference is of course is economics therefore I used the minimum ingredients that are readily available in most Pinoy kitchen.

Asadong Giniling

The only extravagant ingredient as I could see is the used of oyster sauce. However should oyster sauce is not available then add just a couple of teaspoon sugar instead. Another ingredient that may not be available is the star anise, it can be substituted with some Chinese 5 Spice or a couple teaspoon of Hoisin sauce, any of these ingredients is a must otherwise the Chinese cuisine aroma of the dish could not be achieve.
