Balsamic Beef

Awww yeah…

The idea was that I would make balsamic sesame chicken, but the time to go to the store came and went, and I never picked up the chicken or the sesame seeds…

I did have beef in the freezer.

And sesame oil in the pantry…

The beef, sliced thinly and defrosted, marinated in soy sauce and balsamic vinegar with a minced onion for as long as it took me to get the rice on and braised vegetables chopped and started. Then I fried the beef with sesame oil, thickened the juices, and set it aside to rest until the rice was done.

The result is something that looks like it was scraped out of a car engine, but it is awesome, umami-rich and filling in its flavoursome glory.
