Korean Beef

My kids adore this steak- it is their favorite beef dish that I make.  What I love is that the marinade mixes together with just a few ingredients, the meat takes under an hour to marinade and you can cook it in batches to taste. As you can see in the picture below, the meat on the right was cooked for two or three minutes less than the slices on the left, so if you have a rare meat lover in your family, those pieces are for them. My kids adore the ones that have caramelized (like the ones on the left). As you make the batches, the pan tends to accumulate cooked marinade which makes the next batch more brown, so it's good to wipe out your pan with a paper towel in between the later batches so you don't get too much browned marinade. 
Make this for your family- they will devour a whole steak in a flash!

Korean Beef
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup soy sauce
3 minced garlic cloves
1 knob ginger, grated (or 1 teaspoon powdered ginger)
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 1/2 to  2  lbs flank steak, sliced thinly before cooking

Combine all ingredients except flank steak in a small bowl. Slice raw flank steak into thin strips. Place meat in plastic storage bag and pour marinade on top. Marinade meat for 15 minutes - 1 hour. Cook the meat in batches for 3-4 minutes per side in a non-stick skillet over medium high heat until brown and bubbling. Serve with steamed rice and vegetables. Enjoy!
