Recipes: Korean Beef Wraps

One of our favourite meals is Korean Beef.  It is super easy and can be served in a bowl, on a tortilla, on a lettuce wrap or on a plate with rice and beef on top.  I also use ground beef, chicken or turkey for this as well beef flank steak.  All is prepared the same.

Ingredients

¼ cup brown sugar, packed 
¼ cup reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil 
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or more to taste 
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
3 cloves garlic, minced 
1 pound ground beef (or chicken, or turkey or beef flank steak)
2 green onions, sliced 
¼ teaspoon seeds 
Lettuce or tortillas if making wraps. 

Method: 
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and ginger
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add ground beef or whatever meat you are using, and cook until browned; drain excess fat. 
  3. Stir in sauce and green onions until well combined, allowing to simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately, garnished with green onion and sesame seeds, if desired.  

If I am using a flank steak, i serve it on a plate with rice and the steak over top or in a tortilla.  If I am using ground meat, I use the bowl method, the tortilla and lettuce wrap method too.
