Diabetes Quick Fix: Steak dish shows off Korean flavors

2014-03-26T00:00:00Z Diabetes Quick Fix: Steak dish shows off Korean flavorsBy Linda Gassenheimer McClatchy-Tribune News Service Arizona Daily Star

Steak plays an important role in Korean cooking, unlike other Asian cuisines. Invading Mongols brought beef to Korea in the Middle Ages. Rice cooked with spinach and bean sprouts is another Korean staple. I have adapted these recipes to showcase the intriguing flavors of Korean cooking while reducing preparation time.

Brown rice takes about 45 minutes to cook. There are several brands of quick cooking-brown rice available. Their cooking time ranges from 10 minutes to 30 minutes. I find the 30-minute rice has more flavor, but any quick-cooking rice will work for this dinner.

You can use flank, strip or sirloin steak, for this recipe. This beef works well on an outdoor or stove-top grill, or you can broil it.

Most washed, ready-to-eat spinach is sold in 10 oz bags. Use half a bag for this recipe.
