If mother of multiples posts a recipe that she says is easy AND ALL OF HER CHILDREN LOVE IT, you may as well add it to your repertoire of meals–especially meals that need to be done 15 minutes ago.
Thus is the case with this recipe of Korean Beef (not actually sure if it is in fact, Korean) that was posted on the San Antonio Mother’s of Multiples Cooking page. This should be filed under the key words easy, kid friendly, sweet, fast. I think the sweet part is what my family of sugar hounds liked the most! But even my pickiest eaters said that this was the BEST EVER!
I doubled this recipe for my family of seven (we had about ½ cup left over) and served it over brown rice (a nice white Jasmine rice would be delicious, too) and sprinkled some shredded lettuce over it. You could also “roll” up the beef like a burrito in a leaf of bib lettuce.
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1/4 cup brown sugar (OR I sweeten it with pureed butternut squash, dates or raisins)
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- ½ - 1 teaspoon crushed red peppers (depending on how spicy you like it)
- salt and pepper
- 1 bunch green onions, diced
- Rice, cooked
- 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. Serve over steamed rice and top with green onions.
