Korean Sizzling Beef Tacos

This recipe I found on Pinterest, and even though I’m post-college, I’m still broke, so instead of a flank steak, I used ground beef. The marinade in this still gives it tons of flavor and isn’t any less gourmet in my book. However, since I only used about 1/4 lb. of ground beef, I changed the measurements compared to the original recipe. I also added some ginger for more depth of flavor.

I also had no scallions, but the veggies in the egg fried rice is good enough. For the egg fried rice, this is my own recipe I’ve made up over the years, which I’ve already featured in my light sesame chicken recipe. You can add any vegetables you want; I just used what was in my fridge.

This was quick and easy to make on a busy weeknight. I’m excited to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

In a skilled, cook the beef until fully brown, chopping it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Add the ginger in and stir to combine.

Once rice is cooked, combine in a large bowl the eggs and vegetables as well as the rest of the ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
