Posted on

1. You will need:

2 pounds beef

1 cup soy sauce

1 cup pear nectar*

1/2 cup sake

1/4 cup toasted sesame oil

3/4 cups honey

1 jalapeño

1/2 yellow onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves

4 tablespoons ginger, grated

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

*pear nectar is the fancy name for pear juice, which you can get at Walmart / most grocery stores. If you can't find it, substitute apple juice.

6. Pour the marinade over the beef and let them hang out until they become friends.

While you're waiting, take a nap, go to work, and — if worst comes to worst — talk to your family.
