I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of the show “Kimchi Chronicles”, but it’s an eye-opener. It’s basically a documentary on Korean food and was one of my favorite shows when it was on -- the dishes they produce are incredible. True Korean food is so healthy, delicious, and unfortunately, very difficult to make.
I’ve been aching to make a Korean dish for a long time, but everything that looks or sounds yummy requires lots of ingredients (some are very uncommon) and even requires 2-3 days of prep time. No thanks!!! I found this super easy recipe on Pinterest and it was done. Here is the recipe for Korean Beef.
1 pound lean ground beef (the lean part is very important or it will become greasy)
1/4 - 1/2 cup brown sugar (I did just 1/4 because I wanted it to be more spicy)
1/4 cup soy sauce (I used low-sodium)
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1/2 - 1 teaspoon crushed red peppers (to desired spiciness)
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 bunch green onions, diced (don't skip this!)
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown hamburger with garlic in the sesame oil. Drain most of the fat and add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, salt and pepper and red peppers. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors. Stir in some of the green onions at the last minute and serve over steamed rice and top with the rest of the onions.
I served mine with a side of Kimchi...enjoy!!
