KOREAN BEEF RICE BOWLS - Serves 4

About 2 cups raw Asian short grain rice
1 1/4 pounds sirloin tip steak
3 tablespoons dark soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil, plus more for frying
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 teaspoon sambal oelek or other Asian chile paste
1 plump garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger (optional)
1 small sweet onion, diced
1 large carrot, cut into matchsticks (1 cup)
3/4 cup fresh (or frozen) peas
1 small-medium zucchini, diced
2 big handfuls fresh baby spinach leaves
Sea salt to taste
1 tablespoon roasted sesame seed


Cook rice according to package directions.  Keep warm.

Cut steak into thin slices, across the grain.  In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, 1 tablespoon oil, sesame oil and ginger (if using).  Add the beef and toss to coat.  Marinate 30 minutes, up to 4 hours.

Heat a large frying pan or wok on medium high heat.  When hot swirl in about 2 tablespoons oil.  Add onions and saute for 1-2 minutes or 'til edges are golden.  Turn the heat to high and give it just a few seconds to heat up.  Add in the beef, spreading the beef all over the surface of the hot pan, tossing with the onion.  Saute for 2-3 minutes until just barely pink.

Add peas and carrots, cook for 2 minutes.  Add zucchini, and a bit of salt to taste, cook for another minute.  Toss in the spinach and cook for an additional minute. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.  Serve on warm, rice.  Yum!
