Korean Beef and Broccoli

I have a Korean short rib recipe that I love to make in the winter because it goes in the crock-pot.  It’s really the only Korean recipe I’ve ever made but I love the sweet and slightly spicy flavors in it.  When I saw a recipe for Korean beef I was anxious to try it because it had many of the same ingredients as the short ribs.

Easy to make Korean Beef and Broccoli

I was surprised that the base of the recipe was ground beef.  I was also surprised by the lack of vegetables in this dish so I added some broccoli for good measure.  I also drastically reduced the amount of brown sugar because while I like a hint of sweetness to my food I don’t like it overly sugary.  The sauce ended up really coating the beef and turning it a rich brown.  The broccoli soaked up much of the sauce as well.  The beef and broccoli are sweet when I first put them in my mouth and then after swallowing there is a bit of heat.  It was a delicious flavor combination that went nicely with steamed rice.
