To begin making Hobo Casserole Asian Style I sliced up some onions and carrots.

Then I combined some lean ground beef with garlic powder, salt and pepper.

After mixing the seasonings into the ground beef I dumped it into a 9″ x 13″ baking pan.

I used my hands (encased in a plastic bag) to press the meat down evenly in the baking dish.

Then I spread the sliced onion out evenly over the ground beef.

This layer was followed by a layer of sliced carrots.

While waiting for my rice to finish cooking, I prepared the sauce.  You could also use left over rice.  Often I make extra just to have for some casserole recipes.

I measured some brown sugar, corn starch, ginger and crushed chili’s into a mixing bowl.

After stirring these ingredients together I added in some gluten free soy sauce and a bit of water.

Once the Jasmine rice was cooked, I spread it out over top of the sliced carrots in the baking dish.

The final step was to pour the prepared sauce over the rice before cooking.

The I covered the casserole.  You could also use tinfoil.

I baked it for 90 minutes in a preheated 350F oven.

When the casserole was almost finished I cut up some green onions to sprinkle on the top of the rice.

After spreading out the green onions the casserole was ready to serve.

Layers of beef, onion, carrots, and rice will delight your taste buds.
