Korean Beef

A client of mine made a Korean Beef recipe and was telling me how great it was the other day. She sent the recipe my way and Jon and I whipped it up after a very long day at a work event. We were pressed for time and exhausted, but this recipe took no more than 30 minutes from start to finish! We made a few changes in order to reduce the sugar and sodium though..It’s from sixsistersstuff.com so big shout out to them as well as to my client Mel for sharing 🙂

Korean Beef (makes 6 servings):
1000g extra lean ground beef
1/8 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon crushed red peppers (depending on how spicy you like it)
salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp of corn starch

1 tsp of Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
1 cup green onions, diced
Steamed rice (not included in macros)
Stir fry veggies or broccoli (not included in macros)

1) Heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown the beef 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. Sprinkle with corn starch to thicken the sauce slightly then add Sriracha to taste (add more if you like it spicy). Serve over steamed rice, with a side of stir fried or steamed vegetables and top with green onions…then enjoy!
