Seven Flavor Beef with Pine Nuts (Asian Fusion style dish)
Seven Flavor Beef is a famous dish served at Seattle's Wild Ginger Restaurant. It has multiple flavors that make it amazingly flavorful. There's the distinct flavors of lemongrass, five spice powder, ginger and even a bit of chili flakes for an extra kick.
This recipe is my spin on Wild Ginger's version of Seven Flavor Beef using Pine Nuts (+ some other modifications) to give it an exotic nutty flavor. I also like to serve this with extra bean sprouts that are just barely cooked to give the dish a nice contrasting crunch.
Tip: Marinate the beef overnight in advance for extra flavor. You can even make a large batch of the marinated meat, then freeze it to use weeks later (just defrost in the fridge before cooking).
