Cozee Kitchen: Super Quick and Easy Korean Dinner

 This morning I woke up thinking about what my day was going to look like, the word that came to mind was RUSH! I knew that it was going to be a busy day, so I took out ground beef in the morning before I left for work. Then from 8am-noon I kept thinking about what to make , then the light bulb came on! Six Sister's Stuff's Korean Beef! So I came home from lunch and whipped it up!

Six Sister's Korean Beef recipe entailed quite a bit of ingredients and I wanted something super quick and easy so I modified it. 

Korean Beef Ingredients:
1 lb. Lean Ground Beef
1/3 cup Mr.Yoshida Marinade
2 tbs. Agave (or honey or sugar)
2 tbs. Braggs Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)

Dash of Salt and Pepper

1. Sear ground beef with salt and pepper.
2. Add Marinade, Agave, and Liquid Aminos.
3. Add sesame seeds.
4. Top off with fresh Green Onions.

So, on my way back to work from lunch I was thinking of what to pair with the Korean Beef... then another light bulb came on... Korean Veggie Pancake!!!
