I am starting my rice-free journey today. Tricia suggested I refrain from cooking Filipino food at the moment because I associate it with rice.
Adobo is best eaten with rice!!!
Filipino Bistek with rice!
Binagoongan Baboy with rice!!!
Can you see the pattern now?
Being rice-free will be extremely difficult for someone like me who loves Filipino food!
I just need to get over the withdrawal period.
I hope it only lasts for a few days, maximum is one week.
Rice-free menu tonight was Beef Bulgogi.
Beef Bulgogi (serves 2)
300 g. Sirloin, thinly sliced
1/4 C. Korean soy sauce
1/4 C. Brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 white onion, sliced
2 pcs. leeks, white part only sliced diagonally
1/4 t. Black pepper
1 t. Sesame oil
1 T. Toasted sesame seeds, crushed
Mix all ingredients in a bowl, cover and refrigerate for a few hours (4-6 hours).
Heat a griddle or thick bottomed frying pan. Add a little oil then add the meat with the marinade.
Cook until the meat is not pink anymore.
(I added a cup of beansprouts because I needed a filler since I did not eat rice.)
Serve on top of lettuce leaves.
Add kimchi and a small dollop of Gochuang.
Roll and take a bite.
Dessert was just one square of dark chocolate!
