Where Are You From?

I saw this video a few months ago and love it. It pokes fun at the assumptions that many people make about others. Hopefully, it will not only make you laugh, but also cause you to think about how you interact with those that appear different than yourself.

It is wrong on so many levels for me to now post a recipe for Korean Beef Skewers, but there you have it. I discovered a great recipe for tender and flavorful beef, and I saw a short clip that I wanted to share. The two should never be joined, but I have. I am just as much of a jerk as the dude in the video.

(adapted from Cooking Light)

5 tablespoons soy sauce
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons chile paste
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound sirloin steak, sliced thinly against the grain
1/2 cup water
8 ounces rice noodles
4-5 green onions, sliced

Prepare grill to medium heat. (I prefer charcoal for maximum flavor.)
Combine soy sauce, sugar, chile paste, canola oil, lime juice, and garlic in a resealable plastic bag; add thinly sliced beef strips.
Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes, turning bag a couple of times to evenly coat all beef.
Remove steak from bag; reserve marinade.
Thread steak evenly onto skewers.
Grill 2 minutes on each side. 
Combine reserved marinade and 1/2 cup water in a small sauce pan; heat 2-5 minutes.
Prepare rice noodles as directed on package. (Soak in boiling water until tender; drain.)
In a large bowl, toss rice noodles and heated sauce; add green onions.
Serve with skewers. (Serves 4)
