Korean Marinated Beef
amounts per serving
1 T soy sauce
1 t sugar
½ t sesame oil
2 T minced scallions, white and pale green parts only (reserve dark green parts for garnish)
1 t minced garlic
1 t minced peeled fresh ginger
4 oz flank steak
1 t peanut oil
- Combine soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, minced scallions, garlic and ginger.
- Slice meat across grain into very thin slices, no more than 1/8” thick, then cut into bite-sized pieces; marinate in soy sauce mixture at least 15 min.
- Heat peanut oil in heavy skillet over high heat just until smoking; put on an apron while oil heats since ginger will spatter! Stir-fry meat until cooked through and browned, 3-5 min.
- Serve immediately, garnished with scallion greens.
With that I had a Korean beer from the Oriental Brewery. Web research suggested that what I drank was called "Blue", but I couldn't tell from the bottle, and the website for Oriental Brewery doesn't even list it. This beer was a disappointment. It was fine for what it was, but that was the closest to Coors that I could imagine. And, that style is not my favorite. They can't all be great.
