Fast and Delicious Fried Lamb with Bean Paste - a quick rescue on a super busy day.
I think sometimes we can cook very well when we are hungry and need some good food. That was what happened to me the day before. I had a few appointments to handle that day. I took a heavy breakfast before I went out, hopefully to last me through until noon. But the weather was cold and soon I was very hungry.
On the way home, I received a call from my daughter. She asked me what was for lunch. I knew she wanted proper lunch so I told her to cook rice first. By the time I reached home, I dashed to the fridge to check what I had. Saw 3 pieces of cooked lamb. Yes, that should be good enough. Here’s my simple and yet very delicious recipe to share.
3 pieces of cooked lamb
1T Korean chili bean paste
2t brown sugar
The cooked lamb is very easy. It was shown in my recent post on Lamb And Vegetable Rice Noodles. Slice the lamb quite thin and add to a hot frying pan. Add the chili bean paste and the sugar and stir until heated through.
Add the chopped coriander. Mix well and dish up. Serve hot with rice.
While I was cooking the lamb, my daughter washed some cabbage leaves and threw into a cooking pot to cook, totally plain, only with a little oil and pinch of salt. We had a most wonderful lunch together…hot and delicious. My daughter said the lamb was REALLY good. All in all, both of us managed to get our lunch ready in less than 15 minutes….a good, proper lunch. We were satisfied and happy, both with the lunch and our cooking.
This lamb is very versatile. It can be used in many ways. I used it to cook with vegetables recently and it was fabulous. You can also eat it cold or use it for sandwich.
