Recipe from Oxmoor House

Jalapeño seeds add a slight kick to this Thai beef dish. If you want to decrease the heat, seed the jalapeño before mincing.

  • 2 cups finely chopped onion (1 onion)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup lower-sodium beef broth

  • 2 cups bagged baby spinach leaves
  • 4 cups hot cooked jasmine rice
