Friday Feasts #2: Korean Style Beef Stir Fry June 17, 2016

Time for Friday Feasts again! This week’s recipe is another from HelloFresh. It’s Korean Style Beef Stir Fry. This recipe, which can be found here, was a little outside of our comfort zone which was fun! We stuck close to the recipe, but if we do cook it again, we’ll probably spice it up a bit and make it more of our own.

Again with this meal, I threw in the ground meat into the box with the rest of the ingredients. It’s just a matter of convenience for me so I just have to grab one thing when it comes time for dinner instead of digging around in the fridge.

I don’t think I’ve ever cooked with ginger or scallions before. Hubs and I also had never had broccolini. I personally think it tastes the same and is inconvenient cause I don’t like the stem part cooked or raw! I still think it’s so awesome that HelloFresh includes all the ingredients!

Steps of cooking! The HelloFresh recipes are easy and simple to follow. Occasionally there might be a missing minor step, but it’s usually pretty easy to figure out what you’re supposed to do! I love getting to cook with all the fresh ingredients. We usually try to stay on the fresh side, but sometimes it’s easier to grab the processed stuff. That’s what I love so much about HelloFresh! Fresh goodies right on hand with a simple click of the mouse.

We really enjoyed this meal. This is one that we didn’t try with the kiddos. We probably could’ve pulled out enough for them from ours, but they’re not too crazy about ethnic food that isn’t quesadillas or (plain) spaghetti! I spiced mine up with a bit of shrimp sauce after a few bites. It just needed a little something extra. I also didn’t use the full amount of ginger because I wasn’t sure how powerful of a taste it would be. Next time, I would use the full amount of ginger, add a bit more soy sauce, and definitely include the shrimp sauce! I would also switch to beef tips or chicken instead of ground beef. We’re not crazy about ground beef, we usually substitute ground deer, and even then it’s usually only in spaghetti. Ground meat just isn’t a favourite in our house! This was a good recipe though!

I always have a referral code to HelloFresh which takes $40 off of your first box! The code is:

What do you think of the Korean Style Beef Stir Fry? Does it look like a recipe you would be willing to try?
