Asian Essentials: Spicy Beef or Pork
Andy Anderson !
It is amazing what you can do with a pound of beef or pork, and a few simple ingredients.
This Spicy recipe goes great with a lot of different sides and can be used in some very creative ways… More on that later.
The main photo has the recipe combined with some yummy sautéed cabbage.

How to Make Asian Essentials: Spicy Beef or Pork
- It is my goal with many of the recipes I am creating during these trying times is to keep them simple, yet tasty, and utilize ingredients that most chefs would have around their kitchens, fridges, freezers, and pantries.
In this recipe, and hopefully in future ones, I am going to give you alternative choices for the ingredients that are listed. That way you will not have to go to the store, just for one or two things.
- • Chili Sauce
What it hotter? Try using an equal amount of Sriracha sauce, or 50/50.
• White Pepper
Do not have it? Black is good too
• Tamari Sauce or Liquid Aminos
Sub low-sodium soy sauce, or about half the amount in white vinegar. I think it might even be good with apple-cider vinegar.
• Coconut Sugar
Use regular brown sugar, or use white sugar with a teaspoon of dark molasses.
• Beef Stock
Broth can be substituted; however, use low sodium, if you have it.
• Ginger Powder
If you have fresh, you can grate it and toss it in, but double the amount.
• Red Pepper Flakes
Cayenne powder works here also.
• Beef or Pork
Well, I have never made this with ground chicken or turkey; however, I believe it would taste great.
• Yellow Onion
White onions would do the job but use about 25 percent less. You might even get away with using dehydrated onions, or onion powder.
