I haven’t shared a new recipe in a long time … mainly because no recipe has caught our attention enough to be worthy of sharing. I’ve been cooking a lot, really – but mainly the same old stand-bys: stews, soups, casseroles, and things off old recipe cards.
Last night, I was at a cooking impasse. I had no idea what to make … I was completely bored with all the usuals … and I had a pound of de-thawed ground beef. AND I was browsing pinterest when it all came together: Korean Beef, sticky rice, and egg rolls!
We love bulgogi … and while this recipe isn’t “real” bulgogi, the flavor (in our opinion) are very close … EVERYONE loved this recipe (we all like Korean food) – and even MiMi enjoyed the sticky rice and egg rolls (made separately, from a frozen box mix). It was so easy that I actually de-thawed a second pound of beef because I knew we’d want more, and it would be a good left-over lunch for Daniel.
Here’s our new favorite:
“Fake” Korean Beef recipe:
(I doubled everything!)
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 – 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (to taste)
salt & pepper
scallions, optional (for garnish)
Brown beef in the sesame oil. DRAIN (but not too well, don’t rinse).
Add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, salt & pepper. Simmer.
Serve w/ rice and scallions.
