I am mixing my cultures for this recipe we have the distinctly Eastern flavors of the hummus, and I am enhancing the beef with a mix of Korean spices.

This is an excellent dish to serve at a casual get-together with family and friends. It is super easy to make, and you can cook up the beef a day ahead of time, and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Get-together Essentials: Beef & Hummus Plate

Step-by-Step

  1. Gochujang, or red chili paste is a savory, sweet, and spicy fermented condiment. The sweetness comes from the starch of cooked glutinous rice, cultured with saccharifying enzymes during the fermentation process. 

    Traditionally, it has been naturally fermented over years in earthenware jars on an elevated stone platform. Although this condiment has sweet flavor notes; it also very spicy. If you have never worked with it before, I would suggest that you put half the recipe recommended amount into the sauce, and then give it a taste. We can always add more heat to a dish, but it is rather difficult to take it out.

    As this Korean condiment becomes more-and-more popular with Western chefs, it becomes easier to find in your local grocery store.

  4. THE VEGGIES
  5. Toss the veggies with the vinegar and lemon juice, and reserve.
  6. THE BEEF
  7. Add the gochujang, tamari, vinegar, garlic, and ginger powder to a saucepan over medium heat.
  8. Allow the ingredients to simmer for 5 minutes.
  9. Add the oil to a sauté pan, over medium heat.
  10. Add the beef, and the spices to the pan, and sauté until the beef is thoroughly cooked, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  11. Remove from the heat, and allow to come to room temperature.
  12. When the beef cools, toss it with the veggies.
  13. PLATE/PRESENT
  14. Get creative with the plating, and serve with pita bread, and lemon wedges. Enjoy
  15. Keep the faith, and keep cooking
