Best Father's Day dinner. My husband isn't a meat and potatoes kind of a guy. Well, sometimes he is but mostly he loves all things fresh. This dinner was fresh and delicious. Everyone loved it- all six of us. We had firsts, seconds and even thirds! We were inspired by a really yummy restaurant we went to yesterday- Kimhoa. We can't wait to go back. For dinner tonight I made some Bulgogi steak, teriyaki chicken, brown jasmine rice, whole wheat angel hair, veggies, spinach and cilantro. I made some of my mom's homemade teriyaki sauce and some other sauces we had in the fridge. I think this might be a once-a-week summertime kind of meal!
teriyaki chicken (see below)
bulgogi (see below)
angel hair pasta
misc. asian sauces
veggies- we enjoyed carrots, cucumber, bell peppers, green onion and cilantro
Grab a bowl and go to town. There's no right way or wrong way to do it!
mom's teriyaki sauce (my mom)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 cup oil (I use half that)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Combine all ingredients and marinate your favorite meat. For best results, marinate overnight then throw on the grill!
You do not need to use this sauce as a marinade. Great over Asian bowls!
korean bulgogi (a boy from my daughter's 2nd grade class)
1 1/2 pounds beef sirloin , 1/8-1/4" thick
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons sugar or honey
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 green onions, minced
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper, optional
Combine all the ingredients except the beef in a large bowl. Mix well.
Add the beef to the bowl. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
Put the meat on a hot grill sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Cook until the meat is browned.
