My husband has been on a paleo diet for a little over a month now. I’ve been trying to introduce variety into our dinner options. That said, we have periodically been getting into lulls with chicken or pork. A couple of nights ago I decided that we were going to have something with ground beef. Preferably not chili, or hamburgers or tacos. So I turned to my handy browser and sought out alternatives. I found this recipe for “simple and quick” Korean Beef. It looked easy enough and I had most of the ingredients on hand.
1 lb ground beef
1 red pepper, diced (added by me)
5-6 pepperadew peppers, diced (added by me)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar (substituted 1/4 cup honey plus some regular white sugar as I didn’t have brown sugar to desired level of sweetness)
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3 cloves garlic
ginger, crushed red pepper and Adobo to taste (note that the original recipe suggested using fresh ginger. I didn’t have any so I substituted ground ginger)
1. Brown ground meat in large skillet over medium heat in sesame oil
2. Dice peppers and add them
3. Add garlic, soy sauce, sugar/honey and spices
4. Simmer a few minutes to blend
Note: check the level of sauce. If you want more sauce, add additional soy sauce and sugar/honey in same ratio as above
This was tasty. My husband voluntarily ate the leftovers multiple times. I think it was a good way to use ground meat for something a little more creative than chili or tacos.
