That Korean Beef Recipe

From the post on the Korean Martyrs.

Maria asked for the recipe. Well, here it is, very much adapted from the Women's Weekly Asian Dinner Party Cookbook.

Very much adapted because that is how I cook. Slap dash. Delete something here. Add something there.

Surprisingly, this Korean Beef still turned out well. A sweet but not sticky sweet sauce. Delish.

We had it with rice and with Chinese noodles.

1kg ( about 2 lbs) of steak, sliced thinly
1 tablespoon sesame seeds ( I didn't have any so left these out - but they would make an authentic addition!)
6 green shallots, finely chopped
1/2 red and1/2 green capsicum ( pepper), sliced
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger ( I couldn't be bothered to grate the ginger so just chopped it up)
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup dark soy sauce
2 tablespoons sherry

Brown the sesame seeds, if using, in a frypan. Combine all the other ingredients. Marinate for a couple of hours ( I left out the marinate for a couple of hours step, as I only started cooking this at 8.00 p.m. I marinated for, like, 10 minutes. lol!).

Heat a tablespoon of peanut oil in a frypan or work. Add all other ingredients and stir fry until steak is cooked.

That is it. Simple as - especially if you follow my cheat's version.

EVERYONE in the family ate it and liked it. That is amazing!

Yum I'll have to give it a go!! Sounds really tasty & easy. Though I'd probably be even more lazy and use ginger from a jar in the fridge :)
