Korean Beef

I tried a new recipe last night, it was quite tasty.

I'm calling it Korean Beef because that's what Lizzie calls it. I think it tastes alot like the typical Mongolian Beef that I've had at Chinese restaurants. The difference is that it uses ground beef. Ground beef makes it so much easier in my opinion. I typically don't do well with beef strips of any kind, I can't seem to stir-fry without making tough, tasteless meat.

recipe from Lizzie Writes

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
salt and pepper
1 pound lean ground beef
3 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 bunch green onions, sliced

Mix soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, red pepper, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and brown ground beef and garlic in sesame oil. Drain the fat and add soy sauce mixture to the meat. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors. Add most of the green onions and cook for another minute or so.

Serve over rice and top with additional green onions.


I like to drain the meat by pouring it through a strainer, so I added a little more sesame oil back to the mixture after draining. The taste of the sesame oil adds to the overall flavor.

For ginger, I use Gourmet Garden ginger. It comes already grated, in a tube, refrigerated, in the produce department. Makes my life easier and it keeps for a long time.
