Yet another fantastic Pinterest find! It’s probably far from authentic Korean beef but delicious nonetheless. It is one of the easiest recipes in our meal rotation. The entire cooking process takes about 15 minutes, and that includes making the rice to go along with it. Perfect for one of those rushed nights! I doubled the recipe the first time I made this to make lunches for the week, and most of it was gone by the end of the meal. My eldest ate three kid-sized bowls of it! I, myself, was very tempted to lick my bowl clean. We’ve made it several times, since!
Korean Beef Bowl
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp crushed red-pepper flakes
1 tsp minced ginger
1 tbsp vegetable oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound ground beef
2 green onions, thinly sliced
Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish
Whisk together the sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil and red pepper flakes in a bowl.
Heat your vegetable oil over medium high heat, add garlic and ginger. Sautee until aromatic. Add your beef and cook until browned and crumbled. Add the soy sauce mix and green onions. Stir until well combined. Simmer for about 2 minutes. Serve with rice and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top for garnish.
