Easy Sesame Beef

Easy Sesame Beef

This sesame beef recipe is one that took me some time to perfect. Not because of the spice tolerance or the tenderness of the steak, but rather because of the undertone flavors I wanted to taste with every single bite. I spent hours in Kathey Joe’s Kitchen and made sure the beef had everything I wanted and more.

I love making this recipe because there are so many ways to serve it to my loving family. Whether it’s a side or a main course, it always seems to stand out. For an enjoyable prepping, make sure the beef is thinly sliced, cut diagonally across the grain. The trick is to slice the beef partially frozen, maybe consider 1 ½ hours for a fast and easy cut.

My favorite ways to season and prepare the beef for ultimate flavors is with soy sauce, chopped green onions, garlic cloves, and cooked vermicelli. The beef will soak up all the flavors, not to mention add a tempting color. Serve as broccoli beef, or with a side of white rice! Either way, it will sure impress your entire family!
