Sesame beef! Oh, sweet Meat Mountain Goddess, this was delicious. It’s a somewhat modified version of this recipe from AllRecipes.
1 lb sliced round steak
8 TBS soy sauce
6 TBS white sugar
1.5 TBS sesame oil, plus some vegetable oil if you’re feeling sassy
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 green onions, chopped
3 TBS sesame seeds
Combine steak, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, garlic and onions. Marinate for at least 30 minutes. While it’s marinating, chop up some vegetables - whatever you have on hand. I used a bell pepper, half an onion, and a pound of frozen broccoli.
Get your finest wok. Heat some vegetable or sesame oil over high heat. Throw that marinated meat with half the marinade into the wok. Cook meat quickly over the high heat (this is crucial - it seals in the marinade - stir continuously), and then remove the meat to a bowl.
Throw the vegetables into the wok with the other half of the marinade. Cook to tender-crisp, only a few minutes for fresh veggies. Then add the beef back into the skillet and lower the heat. Simmer for a while to thicken up the marinade. Add some cornstarch if you need to. Put in them sesame seeds, make it look pretty. Serve over white rice. Or noodles, if you’re weird.
Reblogging my cookin’ blog because this was a pile of delicious marinated in delicious juice and chewed with my delicious teeth wait scratch that last part.
