The classic sweet savoury flavour of Korean bulgogi beef makes a delicious base for this noodle and veggie bowl. To speed up weeknight dinner preparation, marinate the beef the night before.
Korean Beef Spaghetti
CATELLI® Protein Spaghetti
1 small apple
1/3 cup (75 mL) sodium-reduced soy sauce
2 tbsp (30 mL) each packed brown sugar and rice wine or sherry
1 tbsp (15 mL) each toasted sesame oil and minced garlic
1 tsp (5 mL) minced fresh ginger
Pinch hot pepper flakes (optional)
8 oz (250 g) round steak, very thinly sliced
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil, divided
2 cups (500 mL) each broccoli spears, shredded cabbage and thinly sliced carrots
Toasted sesame seeds (optional)
1Grate apple on a box grater into a large bowl. Stir in soy sauce, brown sugar, rice wine, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and hot pepper flakes (if using) until well-combined. Stir in steak and onions. Marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 day.
2Cook spaghetti according to package directions.
3Meanwhile, heat half the oil in a large wok or skillet set over medium high heat. Add broccoli, cabbage and carrots and stir-fry until tender-crisp. Remove to bowl. Add remaining oil to wok.
4Use tongs to remove beef and onions from marinade to wok (reserving marinade in bowl). Stir-fry for 2 minutes or until just starting to brown.
5Add hot spaghetti, stir-fried vegetables and reserved marinade. Cook, tossing, for 2 to 3 minutes or until the skillet mixture is saucy and hot throughout. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds (if using).
• Par-freeze the round steak for 20 to 30 minutes to make it easier to slice, or buy the pre-sliced beef for Asian hot pots (fondue) available in your freezer section.
• Shortcut the vegetable preparation by using 6 cups (1.5 L) broccoli or kale slaw instead of the chopped vegetables.
• Increase hot pepper flakes to taste for a spicier noodle bowl.
