Do you have a spiralizer gadget yet? This is one great modern invention! I’ve spiralized sweet potatoes for this recipe and they taste amazing, hold their texture, and are a super healthy substitute for Asian noodles. Especially in this dish — Korean Sweet Potato Noodles with Beef! First, get yourself a decent veggie spiralizer with a crank, like this one. Don’t use a manual hand spiralizer or you’ll get cramps in your wrist. Not good, unless you want an arm workout! This recipe is incredibly flavorful and loaded with healthy ingredients like shiitake mushrooms, green onions, garlic, red peppers, kale, and spinach. Not to mention the benefits of healthy sweet potatoes! It’s the sauce that’s the flavor kicker here. Seared top sirloin strips are the protein, and it’s all sautéed with a Korean-inspired sauce of spicy Gochujang paste, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, and rice vinegar. Sprinkles of black and white sesame seeds are the finishing touch. So what are you waiting for? Get spiralizing!!
