What’s for Supper: Korean Beef

Korean Beef Genny

Many times, we opt for the ease of someone else’s kitchen like McDonalds, Pizza Hut, or even our favorite Asian place. But in just a few minutes, you can have something pretty yummy without the drive-thru. This is a very easy recipe my daughter, Genevieve, whipped up after working her eight for the day. It can be on the table in no time, and is very tasty week night treat that is quicker that calling for takeout. Enjoy!

Korean Beef

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef, Genevieve used 93/7
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger root
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, Genevieve used Splenda brown sugar
  • 1 16-ounce coleslaw mix
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha, or to taste. Garlic chili paste would be good here, too.
  • 3 green onions-scallions, sliced

Instructions

  1. Cook ground beef over medium heat in pan coated with cooking spray.
  2. When meat is almost finished push to one side, add sesame oil, then garlic and ginger.
  3. Cook only for about a minute, then stir into meat.
  4. Mix together soy sauce and brown sugar. Add to pan with meat mixture.
  5. Add coleslaw mix. Cook until wilted.
  6. Sprinkle with green onions and serve.
  7. Serve with cooked rice. My favorite is Jasmine. Or this is also a good filling for lettuce wraps.

You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.

She constantly looks for good reasons to gather people together, loves serving her community, and enjoys getting to know new places and cultures. Through these activities and others in life, God reveals His stories of faith, hope and love, and Patty means to tell others about them every chance she gets.
