The Lazyman's Korean Beef
This is a very simple and cheap version of Korean beef. Making the rice is the most time consuming part of the entire recipe.
250 g ground beef (about 1/2 lb)
1/8 cup soy sauce
1/2 Tbs sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp minced ginger
1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
1/8-1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 bunch of green onions
salt and pepper
The actual Korean beef part of the recipe does not take long to cook so start by turning on your rice cooker or boiling water for rice. When your rice has ten minutes left you can start the rest of the recipe.
Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet over medium. Add the ground beef and minced garlic and brown. Once the beef is fully cooked, drain off most of the extra fat and return to the stove.
Add the brown sugar (if you love sweet food add the full amount, add less if you are not as into sweet dinners). We used about 1/6 of a cup of brown sugar. Also add the soy sauce, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes (depending on spice level you want). Let simmer for a few minutes so it has maximum flavor.
While the beef is cooking, slice up your green onions. Once your rice is done serve the beef over the rice and top with a plentiful amount of green onions.
As we said, super simple but it is also super delicious. We actually had it twice this past week :)
