Korean Beef

Korean Beef

I have to admit… my husband doesn’t ask for much.  I love cooking for him because he will eat anything I put in front of him and he never complains.

He also very seldom requests anything. Well… except for scones. He will request scones.

He has told me of his Grandma’s delicious tuna fish sandwiches, her snickerdoodles that only she could make to perfection and this “Korean Beef stuff” that his mom would make and they’d eat it over rice.

I have seen this recipe floating around the internet and have decided that I needed to give it a try. It seems to have the elements he has explained in the dish his mom once made.  Anything with ground beef… I’m game. It’s simple and it’s filling…and relatively inexpensive.


Now… I have to explain. We have a schedule that would confuse anyone. Sometimes we wonder who’s coming and who’s going and when and where. But… we seem to make it work.  The mister works night shifts…long ones. So then I work from home when he is sleeping for the most part.  The days he is home, I work in the mornings from home and we usually do yardwork and hang out otherwise. We randomly fall asleep in the middle of the day. On nights like last night I’m up through the wee hours because I am not tired. My body seriously doesn’t know when it’s supposed to be sleeping or awake anymore.

On the days he works I usually have his “lunch” ready around 4:30 so he can get ready and leave by 5:30. It’s crazy some days because I feed him {dinner} but I pack him a {lunch}. Ya know… kinda backwards. But we make it work.

This was super simple to throw together and I cooked Jasmine rice to go with.  That’s our rice of choice around here.

And yes…. I garnished his dinner, because I’m cool like that. {and I needed pics}

Once again, Six Sisters’  recipe is a good one. No surprise.
