Spicy Pepper Steak

"Not sure what the Korean name is, we always called it Sukiyaki, but I don't think that's it. Maybe mom made her own variation of another dish, as I've never had this elsewhere."

    I chickened out and only used 1 T red pepper flakes and it was plenty hot enough for us. I also subed Splenda for the sugar. I did wait and add the green pepper later. This is really good. The beef had enough fat to fry it all up perfect. Good stuff Jelisa!!

    This is an excellent recipe. I took the advice of some of the other reveiws and cut back on red pepper flakes by 1/2. I love spicy food but I was cooking for others. I think 1 1/2 tablespoons would be perfect. I really enjoyed this recipe.

    I'm korean so I loved the heat! It was so simple and seemed so healthy b/c it cooks so well w/o the oil. Great thing about this dish is that you can change the spiciness or even the meat and the dish still tastes great! :) I personally love tender meat, so the thinner you cut the meat the better, I thought. Tastes very similar to a traditional korean spicy pork bulgogi dish.

    This is just way to spicy for us... and we love our food with heat! I think maybe halving the red pepper flakes would make it a bit more palatable... It has a lovely presentation and smells wonderful while cooking, I just wish we could have tasted something other than "hot!" We will try this one again, just with fewer pepper flakes... Thanks!

    After tasting the sauce and finding it a little too spicy, I doubled it, and added some boiled glass noodle to the dish. My kids loved it so we will be making this again. Thank you for sharing.

    MMMM, Jelisa, this is an awesome and easy meal! It had the perfect balance of heat and sweet flavors from the carrots and sugar. I kept looking at the recipe thinking, "really? just toss it all in there together and cook with no oil?" but I decided to trust you, LOL. Good thing I did -- because this was yummy. I used Stevia instead of sugar, but did not make any other changes.
