Quick Weekend Branch – Taco Rice

When it’s sunny and warm, I feel like cooking Okinawan dishes.
Taco rice is quite a popular one.  Okinawan people invented it by replacing tortilla with rice.

No doubt it’s best to try it in Okinawa – in that distinctive climate and atmosphere – , but it’s also lots of fun to cook your own taco rice.

Actually it’s quite simple.
Serve cooked rice on a flat dish, taco meat, julienne cut lettuce, shredded cheese and tomatoes – that’s it!

* I make taco meat using what’s in the fridge and spice cabinet instead of buying instant taco seasoning mix. I usually cook chopped onions, ground meat (sometimes with celeries, carrots, mashrooms etc.) in a pan, then season it with ketchup, tonkatsu sauce, salt, black pepper, herbs availabe in my planter and tabasco sauce.
