One piece of beef: TWO dinners!

Robin, our local recipe wizard, is back in action with a 2 for 1 dinner combo. Buy one cut of beef and get two unique dinners.

Korean BBQ Beef

  • ½ cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • ½ cup lemon-lime soda (7Up, Sprite, Sierra Mist, etc.)
  • 4 TB sesame oil
  • 5 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 TB grated ginger
  • 2 TB packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 ½ to 2 lbs beef (flank/flat iron/skirt/hanger steak)

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl or large measuring cup, mix all ingredients except the beef.
  2. Place the beef and marinade in a resealable bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate and allow to marinate for at least 12 hours and up to 3 days, turning the bag a few times during the marinating process.
  3. Remove the beef from the marinade and discard the marinade. Thinly slice the beef across the grain and thread onto presoaked wooden skewers.
  4. Grill over high heat until cooked through and serve with kimchi for an easy, weeknight dinner.

 

 

Bloody Mary Tacos

  • 1 cup Bloody Mary Mix
  • ½ cup vodka
  • 1 TB prepared horseradish
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ½ to 2 lbs beef (flank/flat iron/skirt/hanger steak)
  • 1 cup Bloody Mary Mix, additional, for serving.
  • If making tacos, soft tortillas, diced tomatoes, sliced avocado, shredded cheese, sour cream, etc., for serving.
  • If making sliced steak salads, salad greens, diced tomatoes, sliced avocado, shredded cheese, etc., for serving.

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl or large measuring cup, mix all ingredients except the beef.
  2. Place the beef and marinade in a resealable bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate and allow to marinate for at least 12 hours and up to 3 days, turning the bag a few times during the marinating process.
  3. Remove the beef from the marinade and discard the marinade.
  4. Grill beef over high heat, until desired doneness (I suggest nothing more than medium). Remove the beef to a platter and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes.
  5. While the beef is resting, bring the additional Bloody Mary mix to a simmer and reduce by at least half.
  6. Thinly slice the beef across the grain and toss with the reduced Bloody Mary mix. Serve in tacos or in a dinner salad.
