A mildly spicy stir-fry. Serve over hot rice. The sauce can be doubled. Just double the marinade ingredients and the water and cornstarch. For more "heat", add more pepper flakes, or some garlic-chili sauce or Sriracha.

How to Make Korean Vegetable-Beef Stir Fry

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice beef across the grain into bite-size strips. (If beef is partially frozen it is easier to slice).
  2. Combine green onions, soy sauce, garlic, sesame oil, sesame seed, red pepper flakes, sugar and pepper; add meat and marinate 30 minutes at room temperature.
  3. Drain meat, reserving marinade. Dissolve cornstarch in water and add to reserved marinade, mixing well.
  4. Preheat wok or large skillet over high heat; add 1 tablespoon oil, then add carrots and stir fry 3 minutes. Add broccoli and cauliflower slices and stir-fry 2 minutes (until vegetables are crisp-tender). Remove vegetables and keep warm.
  5. Add remaining oil to pan. Add half the beef to hot pan and stir-fry 2-3 minutes (until brown). Remove beef and stir-fry remaining meat. Return all meat to pan.
  6. Stir marinade a little and pour into skillet or wok. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in the vegies. Cover and cook 1 minute.
  7. Serve over hot rice.
