Korean Beef

This flavorful Korean beef recipe is ready in less than 30 minutes. It’s made with pre-sliced sirloin steak and does not require marinating the beef. Simply stir-fry the beef, add the sauce, garnish and serve. I like to add cooked and dried shirataki noodles to the skillet to absorb the sauce, but you can skip the noodles and serve this Korean beef over steamed rice. Click for the recipe

Baked Plantain Chips

It’s official: baked plantain chips are my new favorite snack. I’ve always been curious about the big, fat plantains I always see at the grocery store. They looked like bananas, but I knew they were different, and upon researching online, I quickly learned that unlike bananas, plantains (considered a safe starch) require cooking. Green plantains are starchy, not sweet at all, and can be fried or baked; yellow, ripe plantains are mildly sweet and are excellent when sauteed with butter or coconut oil and cinnamon.

So. These baked plantain chips. Wow. Delicious, mildly spicy, and very flavorful. Great with guacamole, just as great on their own. And so easy to make! The only difficult part in this recipe is slicing the plantain thinly enough to produce crisp chips – the thinner you can get them, the crispier they will be, but I can tell you from personal experience that even the too-thick slices are delicious. They’re not as crispy, but nevertheless they are very, very tasty. Click for the recipe
