I love trying to create asian-inspired dinners for my husband. He misses his mommy's cooking in a bad way. He grew up eating nothing but Khmer food, and then I totally "Americanized" his eating.
So now that my taste pallet is starting to expand into the asian flavors, it is becoming a little easier.
Channa loves spicy. All things spicy. I never cared for anything with a hint of heat to it until I became pregnant. Then I added jalapenos to everything (taco pizza with jalapenos quickly became my favorite...and omelets with them also. yum!)
So this is a great meal that brings on the heat!
1 pound roast beef or flank steak, thinly sliced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp hoisin sauce
1 Tbsp sesame oil
2 tsp white sugar
1 Tbsp red pepper flakes (less depending on amount of spiciness...this makes it spicy!)
1 Tbsp oil
3 green onions, thinly sliced
Combine soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, sugar and red pepper flakes in a large bowl.
Add beef and coat it well.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
Heat oil in wok or large skillet on high, add onions and cook for 10 seconds; add beef.
Continue cooking until beef is no longer pink.
Serve with rice or another side.
