I made this for company this weekend and it went over well! I adapted a recipe I found on food.com that was for Asian-flavored hamburgers. I turned it into a one-dish meal that can be ready in 30 minutes. I might cut back on the soy sauce next time. Also, I went light on the red pepper flakes to please other tastes and then added garlic chili sauce to my portion. Mmm, hmm!
Korean Beef Stir-Fry
- 1 lb ground beef
- 4 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon garlic , minced
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 c. onion, chopped
- 3 small carrots, peeled and thinly sliced on the diagonal
- 2 stalks celery sliced on the diagonal about ¼ inch thick
-Combine the first 8 ingredients and mix well.
-In a large frying pan, brown the beef on medium high heat until no longer pink. Remove to a plate
-Drain all but about ¼ cup liquid from the pan—enough to saute the vegetables. Turn heat to high and stir-fry until crisp-tender. The carrots will take the longest, so test them.
-Stir in the beef.
Enjoy with rice and maybe some boiled pot-stickers if there’s company :-)
