Sesame Beef Stir-Fry

Who wants a yummy, easy dinner recipe? Everybody likes food that's quick and delicious, right? This recipe is pretty healthy too! [Update from April 2013: we make this all the time! So easy. I'm adding some updated photos...]


Recipe adapted from here.

1 tbsp ground ginger
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 pound sliced stir-fry meat (something like flank or boneless sirloin steak - I use flank steak)
8 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces (using only the white and light green parts, discard the dark green stalks)
4 cups baby spinach leaves
1 tbsp sesame seeds

1. Combine the first five ingredients in a small bowl.
2. Heat a skillet over high heat. Add the sesame oil to the pan and swirl to coat. Add half the beef and cook for 3 minutes (until browned). Remove the beef and cook the other half of the beef, then remove that from the pan.
3. Add the green onions to the skillet and cook for 1 minute. Add the soy sauce mixture and cook for another minute. Return the beef to the pan and cook for 1 minute.
4. Stir in the spinach and cook for about a minute (until the spinach is wilted). Top with sesame seeds and serve (it's yummy with rice!).
