QUICK BEEF BULGOGI & ROASTED CARROTS

May 19, 2016

As I have written before, if you want to invest in one speciality ingredient to take all your at-home Asian cooking to the next level, it has got to be sesame oil. It is similar in price to olive oil and is the secret ingredient that makes homemade stir fry dishes feel restaurant quality. Bonus points that I have no problem finding it my regular grocery store.

Because I do not often (ever?) shop at speciality stores, Beef Bulgogi is a fun Korean dish to make at home. You will recognize all the items in this ingredient list, and probably have most of them on hand already.

    Hi Rachel! I love your blog and have especially enjoyed seeing your progress on your new home. I have also appreciated many of your recipes :) I just recently watched the documentary ‘Cowspiracy’ which relates the environmental damage that results from animal agriculture and, seeing this recipe, wondered if you have any thoughts on this issue or have heard anything about it? Should we limit our meat intake, and, if yes, how much? What role do we as Christians play in protecting/saving the environment? Appreciate your thoughts!

      Thanks Rika! I’m glad you have enjoyed the blog. :) This is of course a big question, but in short, my answer is that Christians do not need to limit their meat intake for moral reasons. God created the world for people to use and the view some environmentalists hold that humans are a sort of cancer that is ruining an otherwise good earth is not Biblical. Mankind has done many amazing things, like turning grains of sand into silicon microchips, for his glory. All parts of the Earth, including animals are here for our use and to exercise dominion over.
