Since posting this taste bud rave worthy stir fry, I have been told it is a “huge disservice to my readers” to call this Korean because it is not authentically Korean (I subbed sweet rice wine for the pear because its more accessible) but I haven’t gotten around to changing the name to “Saucy Asian Beef Stir Fry,” so I hope you love this regardless of the name. For as I’ve heard, “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” And in this case, a 30 minute beef stir fry by any other name would still seep with layers of Asian flavors, maybe not just 100% Korean Asian flavors.
As far as the “saucy” part of the stir fry, that is 100% accurate. This Korean stir fry doesn’t scrimp on the “sauce” – because let’s be honest, nothing is worse than a lip-licking sauce that you don’t have enough of! And this is a lip-licking sauce. Soy sauce, sweet Japanese rice wine, garlic and sriracha – mmmm…yes, you will be so happy this is “saucy!”
To make this 30 minute meal (you will be amazed at the flavor coming out of your kitchen in 30 minutes!), you whisk the marinade ingredients together and marinate the meat – the leftover marinade will become your sauce – no double measuring/dish dirtying/whisking/ingredient gathering! I love meals where the marinade does all the work for you!
When its go time, you simply brown the meat and onions…
Dinner is on the table in less than 30 minutes! And not just any dinner – melt in your mouth tender beef oozing with the Asian spiced marinade – vibrant, fresh, tender-crisp veggies dripping with the savory, slightly sweet, slightly spicy, soy sriracha sauce…
All served over a bed of rice, noodles (great with noodles!), quinoa or whatever your heart desires to drown in this Saucy, 1 Pot, 30 Minute Asian Beef Stir Fry.
Once you try this stir fry, you will be so happy this is saucy! because no stir fry should leave you wanting more sauce when it tastes this good!
I hope you now know what you’re making next time you have 30 minutes! because I guarantee you will be so happy you did!
