This ground beef dinner recipe will require 2 big pots on the stove top working at the same time. Do have a peace of mind that you only switch your attention from one pot to another because you are waiting for something to happen. It is totally manageable.
I love the combination of the 5 spice and beef. You can definitely replace it with ground chicken or turkey. I tried to use either one of them before. It may need a little more oil if you use any poultry.
Using freshly cooked rice will make this dish mushy. You can feel the big difference of the texture. Therefore, stick with overnight cooked rice.
Another great tip is to double the quantity of steamed rice. Half of it used in this recipe. Save the other half for other fried rice recipes.
