Egg Roll Bowl

I recently realized that I had never made Asian food for the after school kids so I whipped this up for them a few days ago. And without a doubt, this was their most favorite thing I've made for them.
 Brown 1 pound of ground beef in a heavy pot along with 1 large sliced onion, 2 tablespoons of freshly grated ginger,  4 diced garlic cloves and some green onions. Brown this in sesame oil if you have it.

                                                              Add 1 head of cabbage, sliced.  Add 1 can of diced water chestnuts too. Add 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, 3 tablespoons of soy sauce and a tsp. of fish sauce.
Stir it around and cook it until the cabbage wilts.                                                                                                                   
Continue to stir it around until it is evenly cooked.

Towards the end, I added several shredded carrots.

Serve it over a bowl of rice with some green onions sprinkled on it.  The kids liked this so much they ate it plain without the rice.  They ate the rice separately with sugar sprinkled on it.  That was a surprise to me!  Some of them added milk to the sugar and rice.
