korean beef stew ala city mama



click on the title to be taken to the original recipe over at family food!

this dish was definitley a keeper although way too hot for littlefoodie and myself. next time the jalapenos will be massively scaled down to 2 or 3. this mama formerly suffers from huge ulcers so hothot food does not sit so well. my jalapenos were like small bananas so i am thinking that could've been the issue here.

i've adapted the recipe to my liking a bit. i added a few carrots chopped in big hunks and some garlic and ginger for a fresh taste. i paired it with brown basamati rice and sesame stir fry spinach to cut the heat. i also cooked it in the crock pot which was so easy since we don't stay home long enough to cook it on the stove...it was flaky and tender. i couldn't come up with korean soy sauce so i used a super rich double brewed soy sauce instead...delicious!

enjoy!

2 lbs fresh cut stew meat
8 jalapenos (mine were HUGE)
5 whole garlic cloves
1 small piece fresh ginger, peeled and left whole
4 large organic carrots, cut into big chunks
1 cup of soy sauce
1 cup organic natural brown sugar

put it all into a crock pot and let is sit for 8-9 hours. serve with brown rice to soak up juices.

a big ol bunch of cleaned organic spinach leaves
2 garlic cloves, minced

omg, those are the biggest jalapenos I have ever SEEN! Sorry your mouth was on fire! (The ones I use were about 1/3 that size.)
