Spicy Korean Beef

Are you tired of eating beef in the same few ways?

Does nobody cooks anything else than "Mutter Qeema" in your home?

Do you want to learn a new, easy and exciting way to cook beef?

Then you have come to the right place because I am about to make a quick and easy spicy beef recipe.





This is Spicy Korean Beef. Literally prepared it in 10 minutes and cooked it in 5 minutes.

Simple, easy and full of savory and spicy flavors.

INGREDIENTS:

500 Grams beef cut into small cubes

1 Tablespoon mirin or apple juice

1 Tablespoon sesame oil

1 Teaspoon sesame seeds

2 Tablespoons sugar

1 Tablespoon garlic finely chopped

1 Teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon soy sauce

4-5 green chilies




Slice the peppers and finely chop the garlic.




Put beef in a bowl.

Add salt, pepper, sugar, mirin (or apple juice), sesame oil, sesame seeds and garlic.

Mix the beef marinade with hand and set it aside for 10 minutes.




Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan and start cooking beef on high heat.

The beef will release it's water but it will almost dry up in 5 minutes.




Add a tablespoon of soy sauce to the beef.

Cook it for a minute and add sliced green chilies to it.

Cook for another minute and Spicy Korean Beef is ready to be served.





Keep 3 cans of coke besides you.

Dolsot Bibimbap


I like to make things that no one in Pakistan has ever made before. THIS MIGHT BE A BOLD CLAIM BUT it can be true in this recipe's case.




This recipe is called Dolsot Bibimbap which is a pretty weird name, it feels like you are trying to communicate with a 5 month old kid or someone who is high on some drug abusing someone else in his mumbling voice BUT it is a Korean dish and it is very famous in Korea and I am going to explain what it means.


Dolsot means a "stone pot" in which the dish is cooked in it's final stages. Bibim means "mixed", and bap means rice.


So basicaly you are making rice that you can mixed with desired vegitables and meat and then cooking it in the clay pot.
I know you guys won't understand so let me show you how it is made.
INGREDIENTS:FOR BEEF:

500 grams beef thinly sliced 2 Tablespoons soy sauce 1 Tablespoon mirin (seasoned rice wine) or apple juice 1 Tablespoon sesame oil 2 Tablespoons brown sugar Black pepper VEGETABLES:

Salt 1 Zucchini, julienned 1 Yellow squash, julienned 3 Medium size carrots, julienned 1 (5-ounce) package shiitake mushrooms, sliced


you can use any type of mushrooms and if you cannot find zucchini and yellow squash you can also use cabbage and basically any vegetable of your choice

SAUCE:
1 Clove garlic Half apple chopped Half onion, roughly chopped 1/2 Tbs. soy sauce 2 Tablespoon Gochujang or you can use chili garlic sauce 1 Tablespoon lemon juice 1 Tablespoon mirin, (seasoned rice wine) or apple juice 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
Pinch of black pepper

TO ASSEMBLE:



4 cups boiled rice (one cup per bowl) eggs Sesame seeds







Marinate the beef in brown sugar, black pepper, soy sauce, mirin and sesame oil. Setit aside.




Finely julienne all the vegetables and slice the mushrooms.







Fry all the vegetables separately in one tablespoon oil of your choice for one or two minutes. Mushrooms will take a little more time to cook.

Assemble all the cooked vegetable on separate plate.





Time to make the sauce.


Put a chopped apple, onion, garlic clove, mirin, soy sauce, lemon juice, gochujang, brown sugar and black pepper.


Take out the sauce in a jar separately.








Time to cook the beef. Fry the beef on high heat until all the water it leaves dries out and the oil separates itself.



Time to fry an egg.




Time to assemble the Bibimbap.


Bibimbap is assembled in a special Korean clay pot but you can use any pot made from clay.


First we brush the pot with some sesame oil.


Then we add a layer of rice and top it with all the vegetables we made and you can also add more if you want.


Place the beef in the middle.Put the egg on the top of the beef and sprinkle some sesame seeds on it.








You just basically now break that egg and mix everything like a freaking savage human and eat it.


Ladies and gentlemen Dolsot Bibimbap is ready to serve.
