Quick and easy Ground Beef Bulgogi (Korean Beef) – an insanely scrumptious dish is taken over the top served Poutine Style.
It’s amazing how serendipitous life can really be. About a month of so back, there was all this talk about poutine. I had no idea what it was and when I googled it, it just did not sound like something I would enjoy. Fries with a gravy poured on top. But then, it was a featured dish at the Food and Wine conference last July. It was there that I literally melted over this dish. It was absolutely fantastic. I had never even seen it at any restaurant in Norther California.
Here is where serendipity comes into play. I decided to get a manicure and a pedicure. A new Korean restaurant opened right next door. On the menu was Bulgogi Poutine. That’s it! I said. I am going home and making this dish myself. If bulgogi poutine was on any menu before I would not have ever noticed.
Every once in a while a bit of a french fry splurge is totally worth it. Oh, and using ground beef instead of trying to shave the meat is easier, quicker and taste a thousand time better.
Try something new like this today.
- 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon prepared ginger
- 1 pound ground beef (I used 85/15)
- 1/8 cup brown sugar blend (such as Splenda)
- 1/4 cup premium dark soy sauce
- 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
- ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 2 green onions or scallions, thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
- Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.
- Add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry for 1 minute.
- Add the ground beef and cook until mostly browned.
- Next, add the brown sugar sweetener of your choice, soy sauce, sesame oil and spices to the pan.
- Mix well and continue to cook for another 4-5 minutes.
- Turn off the heat, then add the green onions and sesame seeds. Mix well, then serve.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
