Stir Fried Beef Brisket and Mung Bean Sprout (Chadohl Baegi Sukju Bokkeum 차돌박이 숙주볶음)
Recipe from the popular comedian, Park Narae, on the Korean TV Show “I Live Alone”. Sweet and salty beef brisket sauteed with mung bean sprouts to add a touch of crunch and texture to the dish. Works well with a bowl of rice for dinner or with just the dish itself as bar food (an-ju in Korean) with ice cold beer or soju.

Marinade Ingredients
  1. Dot the beef brisket with a paper towel to get rid of some of the redness from the raw meat. Marinate the meat by placing the beef into a medium sized bowl and adding 1 Tbsp of mirin, 1 and 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce and 2/3 heaping Tbsp minced garlic. Mix well and set aside for at least 20 minutes.
  2. Prepare the vegetables. Wash the bean sprouts, let the water drain and set aside. Slice the garlic, onion, green onions, and peppers.
  3. In a frying pan, add in about 1.5 – 2 Tbsp of oil and the garlic. Let the garlic fry in the oil until the aroma resonates throughout your kitchen and it started to lightly turn amber. Here, add in the onions and continue to stir fry. Once the onions start to slightly wilt add in the marinated beef and also pour in the oyster sauce and honey. Continue to saute until the meat is about 70% cooked through. If using, place in the enoki mushrooms now.
  4. Add in the bean sprouts and give it a stir. Then put on a lid for about 1 minute so the bean sprout will cook through.
  5. Add in the additional soy sauce and stir fry for just another minute. You’re done! You still want the bean sprouts to have it’s crunch so there is a nice contrasting texture from the bean sprout and soft and chewy meat.
