Korean BBQ Beef

I’ve heard so much about Korean BBQ Beef. I don’t know why. It seems like whenever I turn on the tv or browse a blog someone is talking about Korean BBQ Beef. I decided the other night that we needed to have some for ourselves. It was really yummy. In fact, it will become a good beef dish for us.(I tend to make chicken more so I am always needing good beef dishes)

We’ve kinda had a lot of Asian inspired dishes lately so don’t be surprised that you are seeing them pop up on the blog. I like to mix things up though. I am not ever a fan of doing the same dishes every month. Especially if they are all American, Mexican etc. I like to change things up a bit. Are you guys the same?

I think you all should give this one a shot. Ditch the chicken tonight and try Korean BBQ Beef.

Are Pears Good For You?

Pears are very good for you.

Pears are high in vitamin C, and potassium.

Pears contain smaller amounts of calcium, iron, magnesium, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, and folate.

What Kind of Beef Is Used For Korean BBQ Beef?

A good cut of beef, such as sirloin, tenderloin, or skirt steak is best for Korean Beef, but other cuts can also be used.

Can You Substitute Yellow Peppers For Red?

Orange and yellow peppers taste like red bell peppers (and can be substituted for them in most recipes), but they are slightly less sweet.
