We've started off the Cooking Club this year with quite the array of dishes. Most of them are ones I probably would never had made if it wasn't for the club. This recipe that Melidee submitted uses Hoisin sauce, so if you are going to buy it-then another great recipe for you would be one from last year Asian Style Pork and Noodles that also uses this. I haven't made this recipe yet and if Rachel has
Korean Beef in Lettuce Leaves
3 TBSP 100% fruit orange marmalade
2 TBSP reduced sodium soy sauce
1 TBSP hoisin sauce
1 TBSP freshly ground ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup canola oil
1 pound 93% lean ground beef
8 scallions, sliced
2 carrots, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
12 Boston or Bibb lettuce leaves
1. Whisk together the marmalade, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger and garlic in a small bowl. Set aside.
2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook the beef, scallions, carrots, and pepper for 5-7 minutes, stirring often, or until the beef is browned and cooked through. Add the soy mixture and cook, stirring for 5 minutes or until well blended.
3. Spoon the beef mixture into the lettuce leaves and serve, or roll like a wrap to eat.
And get ready! This Tuesday-February 1st, will be the day to link up with January's Ten Things To Smile About! This is your chance to reflect on the month and write a list (with or without pictures) that made you smile, laugh or just the simple good things from the month. You can see some previous lists here.
