Admittedly, this is not the prettiest picture. But in my defense, it was taken on a Saturday night with a glass of wine in me. I just didn't expect this recipe to be SO good, but it is. I actually saw this recipe on Natalie's blog last month. I've never been a huge fan of ground beef, so I didn't give it much thought...until my husband rand across it on Pinterest and insisted we try it. Only...instead of ground beef, we used a filet. And man OH man was this tasty. Honestly...the sesame oil and the hint of brown sugar really caramelizes this and fills the kitchen with the most amazing smell. You must try it stat!
Recipe originally from Six Sisters Stuff
1 lb filet mignon, thinly sliced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 - 1 teaspoon crushed red peppers (depending on how spicy you like it)
salt and pepper
1 bunch green onions, diced
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and brown filet with garlic in the sesame oil. Drain most of the fat and add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, salt and pepper and red peppers. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors. Serve over steamed rice and top with green onions.
We served ours alongside these "cheesy" cauliflower poppers...another amazing recipe in itself!
