Korean Ground Beef

korean ground beef

Time to switch it up, swap out carne asada and carnitas for these other meats that I pinned a few egressions ago. I've never eaten a thing called Korean ground beef, but I must say it smells like home. I'm not a person who can isolate different smells, but I guess beef + soy + garlic + something sweet? It just smells exactly like home.

I'm going to serve this spacefood style over a packet of Trader Joe's microwaveable rice, but I think this would also be good over steamed broccoli or sauteed kale. I might work with this recipe a bit more to see if I can get the kale in.

1 Tbsp sesame oil
1 lb ground beef
5 cloves garlic
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 c soy sauce
2 Tbsp blackstrap molasses
a bunch of green onion

Heat sesame oil over medium high heat in a saute pan. Brown the ground beef in the sesame oil, about ten minutes.

Meanwhile mince the garlic and add it toward the end of browning the meat.

Add red pepper, soy sauce, and molasses, stir and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.

Finely chop green onions and stir into the meat at the end of cooking.
