I loved the Korean BBQ ribs I made a while back, the sauce is fantastic.
I also recently was reading an article about the many variations of shaved beef, a way to extend cuts of meat to many more servings.
What if I combine the two? What about sliders - little savory two-bite treats?
The grocery store had beef two for one sale. Two bottom round roasts later, and I was ready to give it a try.
I put the beef in the freezer to firm it up. Meanwhile I whipped up another batch of the BBQ Sauce. This is going to be a stapble for me I know it, but since I haven't got it memorized, here is the recipe again.
3/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
2-3 green onions, chopped
4-1/2 teaspoons Asian (toasted) sesame oil
3/4 teaspoon sesame seeds
Make the marinade:
Whisk together the soy sauce and sugar in a bowl until the sugar has dissolved.
Stir in the black pepper, garlic, green onions, sesame oil, and sesame seeds. Set aside
Remove the beef from the freezer, it need not be frozen solid, just very firm. Trim the fat.
Slice very thin against the grain, I used my meat slicer, it does a much better job than I could with a knife.
Marinate the beef in the BBQ sauce for minimum 2 hours or overnight.
Grill on hot outdoor grill for 2-4 minutes, it will not take long, the beef is so thin.
Mound some up on small dinner rolls, these are topped (left to right) with candied jalapenos, quick Kimchi, and grilled green onions respectively.
These are fantastic! Savory, sweet, the crunchy toppings. Definately party food!
Until next time, Eat Well & Keep Digging!
